2. FREE Train the Trainer Events
Dyslexia Action is thrilled to be involved in a Department for Education funded project that will help teachers and support staff across the UK to better understand dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties and to help equip them with the tools and knowledge that they need for best practice teaching for those with learning difficulties. For more details on this project, please click here.
The project is being delivered by a group of charities including the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), Dyslexia Action, Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, Patoss, and The Dyspraxia Foundation. The project will be evaluated by a team of dyslexia and education experts from Manchester Metropolitan University, who will provide a full impact report.
The project has delivered FREE teacher training events offered across the UK to help teachers understand, identify and provide appropriate teaching and support to young people with dyslexia and other SpLDs. For more information on dates and locations of remaining events please see below. To book your place click here.
These training events have also been delivered by the charity partners in a series of live webinars with recordings available to watch below.

Free Train the Trainer Webinars on Neurodiversity
Teaching for Neurodiversity Train the Trainer is now available as a series of 3 FREE one-hour webinars covering all the materials delivered in the live training events and delivered by the charity project partners.
The webinars are designed for members of staff who will be cascading the training to colleagues in their schools/educational settings.
The 3 sessions comprise:
Part 1: Seeing the whole picture - this session introduces and discusses the purpose of the Teaching for Neurodiversity training. It focusses on learner profiling and introduces a number of case studies as examples.
Part 2: Understanding neurodiversity - the second session discusses definitions of neurodiversity and specific learning differences (SpLD), particularly emphasising how different SpLD co-occur. It introduces a combined checklist for neurodiversity/SpLD and discusses how this can be used in schools and other educational settings.
Part 3: Classroom support strategies - the final session suggests a range of easy to implement strategies to help in making the classroom or learning environment more accessible to all learners.
Delegates should note that they will need to listen to all 3 sessions for their chosen level in order to complete the training.
Prior to listening to the webinar, delegates are recommended to download the relevant delegate pack.
