Identifying assistive technology for late primary learners with dyslexia - the assessment process


23rd February, 2023 (4:00pm - 5:00pm)

£30 per individual.

60 minute Online Learning workshop.

There are many assistive technology tools that can help a student with dyslexia and it can be a challenge to work out which, if any, are likely to be helpful.

This online course will explore how teachers, parents and learners can identify which technology can meet a learner’s individual needs. We focus on learners in the later years of primary school because this is often when literacy difficulties become a significant barrier to learning, and when we plan for transition to secondary education.

This course was held on the 23rd February, 2023 but you can still purchase a recording of the session.
You'll also receive all the resources that were sent out with the course.
