Project Details

Overview: 

Explore information and resources related to teaching adults with dyslexia. The resources cover topics such as what dyslexia is, how it can be identified, how it can affect people and what support can be put in place by educators.

 

 

Key Points to Note:

  • For adults with dyslexia to succeed and reach their full potential, it is vital for educators and employers to be informed of what dyslexia is, how it can be identified, how it can affect people and what support can be put in place.
  • These resources will help educators and employers understand more about dyslexia and how to teach and work with adults with dyslexia.
  • To get started, watch the Introduction to Dyslexia Resources video.
  • Keep in mind, some teaching and learning resources have supporting resources, including videos and conference presentations.
