3 November, 2023
On completion of the whole course, you will be accredited with 18 hours’ CPD by the CPD Standards Office and issued with a certificate.
This is a very practical course for teaching assistants or anyone supporting learners with dyslexia or Specific Learning Difficulties.
The course comprises six three-hour sessions on Fridays from 9.30 am:
|Session 1 on 3 November||Overview of Dyslexia and SpLDs|
|Session 2 on 10 November||Introduction to Phonological Awareness and Phonics|
|Session 3 on 17 November||Learning Preferences and Multi-sensory Teaching|
|Session 4 on 24 November||Reading Accuracy and Comprehension|
|Session 5 on 1 December||Spelling and Writing|
|Session 6 on 8 December||Numeracy|
You will be shown lots of useful, tried and tested strategies to enable you to support learners effectively. You will also have the opportunity to make attractive, practical resources that you will be able to use with your learners.
Book all the sessions together or individual sessions to suit your needs.
There will be a recording sent out after each so that you can watch if you booked and can’t attend the live session, or if you would like to watch again!
This course is not accredited, so there are no assignments to complete.
You will receive a Helen Arkell Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course/session.
