Unit in Supporting adults with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties (DACPD91)

This Level 4 Unit provides a framework for the support of adults with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties in a variety of post-compulsory education environments. The holistic needs of the individual will be considered, as well as the barriers that adults can face once they leave school. Issues surrounding communication and support will be explored. Memory, attention and the environment will be reviewed as a foundation to support provision, whether in further or higher education, work-based training and apprenticeships, or other environments in which learning takes place with adults.

Learning Outcomes - On completion, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the impact dyslexia has on day-to-day adult life
  • Identify what support can be provided by the setting and locate external agencies that also offer support
  • Demonstrate an understanding of underlying cognitive factors in dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties

These specialist e-learning courses are designed to strengthen the expertise and confidence of teachers, teaching assistants and support tutors in order to ensure the progress and achievement of children or adults with Dyslexia / SpLD. The courses aim to raise awareness of specific learning difficulties, improve the school and classroom environment and change teaching approaches. This will help teachers and teaching assistants to develop inclusive practice and strategic approaches to meet the needs of individual learners.

Our online courses provide flexibility for learning in a personalised way which enables studying to be fitted around personal and professional commitments.
