This Specialist SpLD Practitioner CPD extension course has been developed to extend the knowledge-base and skills of specialist practitioners in important areas of practice.
Developing Placement Processes to Effectively Target Specialist Support.
This course relates to the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP). No prior knowledge of the programme is needed, though participants are expected to have a working knowledge of a structured, multi-sensory literacy programme or hold a qualification in specialist teaching or speech therapy.
The course describes the features of three different placement systems and participants will study these in order to gain understanding of the pros and cons of different placement methods. As part of this study issues such as the interpretation of spelling errors and ways to categorise different aspects of literacy are also considered.
The unit will be of interest to practitioners wishing to develop their own tailored, multi-sensory literacy interventions for learners. Study of specific placement processes will enable practitioners to develop their own systems to appraise learners’ individual learning requirements. Participants will also gain an understanding of some of the key principles underlying the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP).
This CPD course is part of a Level 7 SpLD practitioner extension programme and therefore participants must have already qualified as specialist SpLD teachers (ADG Dyslexia Guild or ATS/APS British Dyslexia Association). Suitable qualifying courses include, but are not restricted to:
Individuals who do not meet the criteria but are interested in specialist teaching may apply to the Dyslexia Action Level 5 Diploma in Strategic Teaching Support .
Please note if you select the ‘pay later’ option an additional fee of £25 +VAT will be added to your invoice. All monies must be received before the start of the course.
Please note: This course is not suitable for those without some knowledge of specialist literacy teaching and a structured multi-sensory literacy programme. Anyone who has recently studied the Dyslexia Action Professional programme – Module C (within the last 4 years) or Unit 3 of the Dyslexia Action Level 5 Strategic Teaching course will find that there is some overlap in content.
