Working with a Child with Dyslexia


This training will enable delegates to explore the use of a number of assessments that can be administered by teachers and teaching assistants both to develop a more precise understanding of a pupil’s language difficulties and to inform the full diagnostic process.

The tests examined will include non-word reading and short-term memory tests. In addition delegates will be shown how to use a test of phonological skills that they can readily use in schools.

This training will build upon the course offered by the Teaching School in February.

This course scored 9.2 out of 10 last year


“Really useful and lots of 
practical applications.”
