The purpose of this eLearning module is to provide candidates with a better understanding of the identification of dyslexia within an adult setting. This module looks primarily at screening for dyslexia, which is a process that often takes place prior to a full diagnostic assessment.
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.
The BDA Level 7 Diploma in Dyslexia Assessment and Intervention (AMBDA and AMBDA FE/HE) provides you with a critical appreciation of assessment and teaching. It will enable you to formally diagnose dyslexia and will lead to you gaining an AMBDA and/or an APC. In addition, candidates who complete this course will have the knowledge to build on their specialist teaching skills and carry out exam access arrangements.

The BDA Level 5 Certificate in Dyslexia; Literacy, Support is the first step toward becoming a dyslexia specialist and is often regarded as the first step towards a Level 7 AMBDA approved programme. Candidates who have completed the Level 5 certificate will have enough knowledge to deliver specialist tuition to individuals requiring support with dyslexia.
