  • Understand the process of identification of dyslexia, and general rules for screening
  • Have considered factors that may lead to inaccurate screening results;
  • Understand the profile of a dyslexic individual following a screening activity

Programme Outline

  • Topic 1: An Adult Perspective
  • Topic 2: The 6-Stage Identification Process

Note: this module looks primarily at screening for dyslexia, which is a process that often takes place prior to a full diagnostic assessment. Screening does not provide a confirmed diagnosis of dyslexia, however it can provide an idea of where an individual’s strengths and difficulties lie, and so can help to inform a programme of support.

A confirmed diagnosis of dyslexia can only be provided by an appropriately qualified individual. For further information on this, please review the BDA Assessments page
