Feedback from our participants
“I am far more aware of the needs of dyslexic children than I was before. I used mind-mapping with a year 10 student who was planning a persuasive speech, but was having difficulty in structuring the essay. By using colour coding and by numbering similar ideas, the essay was well planned and the student felt much more able to tackle the task.

“This training has impacted on my thinking as a teacher. How I present lessons and how I set my surroundings. Looking at other schools with dyslexia friendly status has inspired me to 'spread the word' and share the good practice with others within my setting.

“I have a wider understanding of the definition of dyslexia and the effects that this disability can have on a child. I have also learnt that with the right training, education and support a child with dyslexia could reach their full potential both academically and socially.
