The Dyslexia/SpLD Support Project 'Teaching for Neurodiversity' was funded by the Department for Education and ran until 31st March 2017.
It was led by the British Dyslexia Association in partnership with Helen Arkell, the Dyspraxia Foundation, Dyslexia Action, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Patoss.
The aim of the project was to provide training and quality assured information about dyslexia and other SpLD for teachers and support staff, and for dyslexic individuals and their families.
I attended a neurodiversity workshop today at Putney High School and I just wanted to let you know the presenters and the workshop were both exceptional. The ability to access the content before the session was very useful for structuring notes and making some of my own preparation. The content of the workshop was extremely useful and delivered in a way which allowed attendees to think about how it would apply in their own school.
The presenters worked very well together drawing on each other and their areas of expertise to deliver content. They were friendly and supportive of all comments and participation by attendees.
I am a second year teacher and SEN link for the English department at Oasis Academy Shirley Park. I can already see how we can incorporate aspects of the workshop into the whole school.
Please thank the presenters for doing such a wonderful job today.
"I enjoyed the day especially for the opportunity to meet with other professionals and share ideas. We have only recently started to work with secondary schools and seeing your neurodiversity power point slides, which are very visual and thought provoking, made me re-think our presentations."
