Accredited Learning Support Assistant (ALSA) is an expanding area of accreditation and gives Learning Support Assistants (LSA) recognition for their skills in supporting dyslexic children in the classroom under the supervision of the class teacher.

Many university undergraduate courses now include modules leading to ALSA accreditation as part of the course. Some local Authorities also offer an ALSA course tailored to their Local Offer in association with a university.
