Description


This course will develop your understanding of the barriers related to administration experienced by students with Specific Learning Difficulties (such as dyslexia), and how these can be overcome. It will review how best to manage the requirements of students with Specific Learning Difficulties, increase the support you can offer and identify the systems you need to employ. It will review the processes involved in setting up and managing student support.

This structured course will help you to fulfil your responsibilities to students with Specific Learning Difficulties and provide effective practical support required in terms of policy and accessing formal support. The course will focus on dyslexia, dyspraxia and dysgraphia.
