Having attended the masterclass day in Inverness in Nov 2017, this was an excellent way to consolidate what I'd learnt there while reflecting on my practice since then. It's a straightforward course which has really helped my confidence in being part of the identification process and in supporting all my pupils in an inclusive manner. It also clarified my understanding of current legislation and pathways for identifying dyslexia. I am a class teacher but due to my own interest in literacy and language I have now enrolled on the second module, which looks more challenging. I didn't have any technical issues other than the glossary problem mentioned by others and the fact that the links to the Education Scotland pages are broken, presumably due to all the recent changes to the Ed Scot website.

I enjoyed taking part in this online learning course as it caused me to think about current national and council policies relating to inclusive practice. I found it beneficial to review the range of support strategies that can be used with young people with Dyslexia and the links to further reading were helpful also. I would like to go on to complete Module 2 as I feel these study opportunities will have a positive impact on my teaching practice.
