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.
