Learner Motivation and Self-esteem

£60

Developing and sustaining self-esteem and motivation can be a real challenge for individuals with additional needs and is an area that is important to address.

The Dyslexia Friendly Learning Environment

£60

eLearning

It is recognised that the vast majority of dyslexic individuals spend most, if not all, of their education time in a mainstream classroom or learning environment. This module identifies how the “classroom” and “institution” can be made dyslexia friendly, thus creating an inclusive learning environment. This module is linked to the BDA's Quality Mark which provides a template of good practice in this arena.
