Dyslexia awareness

Develop knowledge, skills and good practice around dyslexia

It is estimated that up to 10 per cent of the population is affected by dyslexia, with around four per cent significantly affected. 

This means supporting those with the condition will impact on almost every classroom, training room or workplace across the country. 

Our course provides a comprehensive overview of dyslexia, including the difficulties and strengths associated with it. These are further explored through experiential learning to give delegates an appreciation of how it may feel to experience those issues.
