Dyslexia Awareness: In partnership with Made By Dyslexia & Microsoft
Rating

This is a two-part course on dyslexia awareness and helping students reach their potential.

“1 in 5 children are made by dyslexia. It’s vital that we spot their strengths and support their challenges” - Kate Griggs, Founder of Made By Dyslexia.

In every classroom, in every school, around the world, there are 1 in 5 kids with exactly the thinking skills needed for the future of work. They are Made By Dyslexia.

But less than 20% are spotted at school. This two-part course created by Made By Dyslexia will change that – for good. It will give you easy to use strategies, used in the world’s leading specialist dyslexia schools, to help you spot, support and empower every dyslexic learner.

Now – more than ever – the world needs people who think differently. By taking our training today, you’ll change dyslexic children’s educational outcomes tomorrow. And be part of a powerful movement for change!
