“I am currently studying my sixth unit with Dyslexia Action and have found them enormously interesting and helpful. It’s absolutely fantastic for me to be learning how to support children who are experiencing blocks to learning. I have found the forums fantastic for sourcing extra material and ‘read around’ different subject areas, the forum is also a good source of moral support and practical help with the assignment.”
“This is an excellent short CPD course for me and I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I am very pleased that the course run during the summer period, as this is the only time I can do any course to improve my skills. The tutors are very supportive.”
