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.
