Dyslexia Awareness

Duration

1/2 day

Course Overview


Dyslexia is a common learning disability but general awareness is quite low - perhaps because despite great advances in our understanding of the disorder, its exact cause and cure are still unknown. This half-day course aims to impart the science of dyslexia in an easy-to-understand way, share existing knowledge from within the group and consider the everyday social (and working) impact of dyslexia.

Course Content

  • What is dyslexia
  • Key facts and common myths
  • Causes, symptoms and co-occurring difficulties
  • Diagnosis and treatment
  • Resources and support

Methods of Delivery


This short course uses a mix of trainer presentation and intra-group learning to introduce the subject matter at an awareness level. Visual aids will support the trainer presentation, and learners' input will be encouraged through plenary and subgroup work.
