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. A range of barriers to competent performance, including the operating environment will be examined as a foundation to identify appropriate provision. The materials in the unit will be pertinent to those supporting adults in further or higher education in work-based training and apprenticeships or other environments in which learning takes place with adults.
This co-occurring unit is part of a wider CPD programme which offers the opportunity to choose from a range of study options:

“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.”
