Would your organisation find it beneficial to have access to a tool that highlights features of hidden disabilities in individuals at work or in further education, allowing you to offer better support?

A 2-day training course, which is required to administer the Hidden Disabilities Questionnaire (HDQ), is to be held on the 8th and 9th September in London.

It not only provides training, but provides the screening tool, with online scoring and report generation, and 6 months free licence to use it with as many people as you wish.

Would you, or anyone you know aged 11-14 years of age benefit from free online literacy support?

There are 8 places available on our Dyslexia Action Online Teaching project for students to take part in the online Dyslexia Institute Literacy Programme (DILP).

We are now entering the final term and are looking for students to join the project which was developed to provide specialist literacy and dyslexia teaching, in a new and innovative way, via an online learning platform. The project enables us to offer support to young people who could not otherwise access help, due to key barriers such as time, location or transport costs.

This teaching will benefit students who may have had difficulties attaining level 4 at KS2 SAT’s.

For more information, please contact Maria Malony: mmaloney@dyslexiaaction.org.uk
