The Module focuses on the application of existing teaching strategies and the development of new approaches based on the principles of specialist dyslexia teaching and on the principles of dyslexia-friendly schools.

The aims of this Module is to enable you to:

  • Make links between assessment and intervention for dyslexia so as to address the needs of dyslexic learners and remove barriers to learning
  • Select from the teaching approaches available to enhance access to the curriculum for learners with dyslexia
  • Adapt and evaluate their own teaching strategies through the principles of action research
  • Start developing dyslexia-friendly approaches in their contexts for the inclusion of learners with dyslexia.

The module will be assessed by means of a professional practice portfolio comprising evidence that participants have met all the relevant requirements posed by the British Dyslexia Association so as to meet the AMBDA criteria for specialist dyslexia teaching.
