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. Whilst this module is aimed at supporting dyslexic individuals, the strategies suggested here would be equally appropriate for those who are not dyslexic.
This half-day in person training session aims to give you a brief introduction to dyslexia and to develop a good basic understanding of specific learning differences.
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 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. These resources may be of particular use to those working with children who are approaching the Phonics Screening Check. The materials for this course have been developed as part of the SoundCheck Project as run by the BDA in partnership with Dyslexia Action and Springboard for Children.
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.
This eLearning module provides a number of resources that parents may find helpful when supporting their child with their dyslexia.
