Course overview

This course will help you understand what is meant by Dyslexia, how it is diagnosed, and how to support individuals with Dyslexia.

By the end of the course, you should have an understanding of how to:

  • address barriers and support individuals with Dyslexia
  • support them to enhance their own educational, social, emotional and behavioural development
  • increase their independence

By successfully completing this course you will achieve an Level 2 Award in Dyslexia Awareness (AIM Qualification)

Assessment is completed via portfolio of work.
Learners will need to be able to attend at least 80% of the sessions to complete the portfolio and individual tutorials will be offered during the course.

The course is taught in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with an experienced tutor, and there is opportunity to meet and socialise with others in the group in a friendly, relaxed environment.

Learners with any special needs can discuss these with the tutor at the information session to ensure that the course is suitable or can be adapted for their needs.
