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.

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.
