Thursday - What help is at hand?

Thursday 6th October 2016 - What help is at hand for those with dyslexia?

A vital component of dyslexia support is that everyone develops an awareness of dyslexia. Understanding the challenges and possibilities that dyslexia can bring will help dyslexic individuals stand a far greater chance of achieving their potential.

Training for parents, education providers and employers is readily available and accessible through a wide variety of media and suppliers.

Accessing good quality assessments enables the individual that is dyslexic to be empowered. In addition, an assessment can help those providing support to develop a coherent strategy to support difficulties and improve performance whilst at the same time nurturing abilities and talents.

The BDA can provide comprehensive training to meet these needs and offer a high quality assessment service to parents, teachers, individuals and employers.
