The Dyslexia / SpLD Support Project is funded by the Department for Education and will run until 31st March 2017.
It is led by the British Dyslexia Association in partnership with the Dyspraxia Foundation, Dyslexia Action, Helen Arkell, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Patoss.
The aim of the project is to provide training and quality assured information about dyslexia and other SpLD for teachers and support staff, and for dyslexic individuals and their families.
Throughout the coming months, we’ll be achieving this aim in a number of ways.
Firstly, our project partners, Dyslexia Action, Helen Arkell, and Patoss, are delivering a series of Train the Trainer events at venues around England. These are designed for teachers and support staff in primary and secondary schools, and for lecturers and support staff who work in post 16 education and training.
To register for any of these free courses, please visit the Eventbrite page at
Materials for the Train the Trainer events are available to download below.
We’ll also be delivering a number of webinars later in the year to support the training events, so do keep an eye open for details of these.
Secondly, we are developing an online resource providing information about dyslexia and other SpLD for teachers, parents and carers, and for children and young people affected by SpLD. We’re hoping that the site will be online by the end of the year and will be posting information as it becomes available.
