Discover the Course Content

The Certificate consists of three set course units, each of one term.

DACPD81: Principles of Literacy Intervention for Learners with Dyslexia and other Literacy-related Difficulties

  • This unit raises awareness of the key elements and rationale of effective literacy intervention practice using the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP) as an example. Participants will explore the complex relationships between sounds and development. The analysis of the different strands of DALP will enable participants to appreciate the range of factors to consider when planning strategic, structured support for learners with dyslexia and literacy related difficulties.

DACPD82: Structured, Sequential Literacy Support and the Placement Process

  • This unit is designed to enable participants to collect placement data and to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to ascertain a learner’s ideal entry point on the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP). Further in-depth analysis of the different strands of DALP will enable participants to reflectively and effectively plan strategic, structured support for learners with dyslexia and literacy-related difficulties.

DACPD83: Developing a Literacy Intervention for Learners with Dyslexia or Literacy-related difficulties

  • This unit is designed to enable the practitioner to plan and deliver a series of structured literacy lessons to a learner. Participants will put their knowledge of the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP), gained from earlier units, into practice. A range of additional activities is undertaken to enable the participant to develop a varied portfolio of strategic teaching support skills.

How is the course delivered?

The core curriculum is delivered by means of a range of e-learning resources. These include presentations, articles, exercises, videos and follow-up activities and tasks for participants to carry out at intervals. This course includes a Teaching Intervention Programme which the participant will undertake with one learner within their school/work environment (in the third Unit DACPD83).
