Dyslexia Action along with The British Dyslexia Association, Helen Arkell and Patoss are to deliver FREE Teaching for Neurodiversity webinars for teachers and support staff in January - February 2017. These webinars aim to provide valuable training and quality assured information about dyslexia and other SpLD in the classroom.

As part of a Department for Education funded project, the webinars will follow the free ‘Teaching for Neurodiversity, Train the Trainer’ events that took place across England in 2016. All the information covered in the live events will be available as a webinar and supported by downloadable training materials.

The webinars and accompanying resources have been created to enable education staff to cascade their knowledge to colleagues in their particular education setting. However, they are open to anyone who has an interest in finding out more about teaching for neurodiversity.

Amongst other topics, the 3 one hour webinars will explore the range of neurodiversities, how to identify Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) and will also look at strategies to support learners with neurodiversity.
