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.
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.
This course covers learning points associated with punctuation, syntax and suffixing. It provides practitioners with a structured and meaningful approach to literacy tuition. It demonstrates how to develop meta-linguistic awareness in learners, so that learners can identify some key word classes and units of meaning within words (prefixes and suffixes). Spelling is also examined in this unit, especially within the context of unaccented syllables – a key area of difficulty for many learners.
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.
