An introduction to Dyslexia | Supporting learners to achieve their potential
Hear about this workshop from facilitator, Mike Styles:
Develop your skills and knowledge to recognise and support tertiary learners with dyslexia and other learning differences to achieve their potential.
The webinar series provides for three hours of direct interaction covering:
