DACPD91– This Level 4 Supporting Adults with Dyslexia and Co-occurring Difficulties Unit provides a framework for the support of adults with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties in a variety of post-compulsory education environments. The holistic requirements of the individual will be considered, as well as the barriers that adults can face once they leave school.

“I really enjoyed the course and am planning to do the next one soon. It was helpful to learn the theory and then apply it to examples and work-place scenarios. I am already finding myself using my new knowledge and ideas when working with my students.”
“This has been an in depth and extremely useful course that goes towards my Level 5 Diploma. The knowledge and understanding of dyslexia that I have gained from this course has been immense and helped me to clarify key areas of understanding and practice where I needed further insight into. It highlighted numerous approaches and strategies for supporting adults and students with dyslexia which I will now take on and begin to implement through my own practices in the coming academic year. One important highlight that I can take away from the course in particular was the importance of context-related perspectives of dyslexia and where barriers may emerge to progress.”
