Would You Credit It

 

Former Head of Education and Training at Dyslexia Action provides a summary of qualifications and considers how credit and level can define and clarify the qualifications marketplace.

We are often asked about the ‘value’ of qualifications. In this article we attempt to explain some important concepts that may help when considering if the much-loved and well-used qualifications you hold are still as valid today in the field of specialist teaching and assessment as they were when you first qualified.

The Dyslexia Compass

Martin Bloomfield of York Associates has been leading on a European Union funded project called The Dyslexia Compass, a tool to “translate” dyslexia measurements and assessments across Europe. Here he tells us about the outcomes of his research.

Dyslexia knows no barriers. Or so we would like to think. It knows no borders, it knows no countries, and it knows no race. Dyslexia is neurological. Dyslexia is hereditary. Dyslexia is human. Dyslexia is neither political nor religious. Dyslexia is ethnically neutral. Or so we would like to think.

Consider the following question: if a child is dyslexic, is she dyslexic everywhere she lives? Can she “lose” her dyslexia when her parents simply move house to follow work, or to escape difficult socio-economic or political situations at home?

Specialist Teacher Training Programmes: Back to the Future in Literacy Development

 

Specialist teacher training is much more than an understanding and management of dyslexia and literacy, diversity and inclusivity in learners. Qualified specialist teachers will have had access to a specific literacy programme.

These programmes will have provided a thorough training in the phonology and phonetics of the English language and a sound underpinning knowledge of language acquisition, morphology and syntax, semantics and the sociological dynamics of language. Knowledge that is informed by speech and language and communications therapies is built into comprehensive training courses that enable the practitioner to address the diverse literacy needs of any individual and provide appropriate remedial training. The Dyslexia Actional Literacy Programme (DALP) is one of these programmes.
