This eLearning module examines the unique traits that have helped some of the world's best-known dyslexic individuals rise to success. From developing determination and self-esteem, to seeking the right kind of help and support, this module identifies how all dyslexic individuals can develop and use these traits to unlock their own potential. This programme supplements “Self Fulfilment with Dyslexia: A Blueprint to Success”, by the BDA Vice President, Margaret Malpas MBE, and includes activities, case studies, and videos to provide further opportunities for learning.
This eLearning module is designed to assist individuals with developing an understanding of Access Arrangements for examinations. It provides an overview of what access arrangements are, how these apply to those with dyslexia, and what types of support are available. Please note, regulations concerning access arrangements change on a regular basis and so this module should not be taken to be a definitive guide.
This eLearning module has been designed for teachers, TA's, LSA's and other education professionals who wish to support primary age learners to develop better phonics skills.

The development of technology that can assist those who have dyslexia, as well those who have other types of disability, to cope with certain tasks that they find difficult has transformed the landscape of coping strategies that we are able to offer to these individuals. This is a specialised field, however, and there is not generally a great awareness amongst the education/work population of exactly what is available.
