Introduction to dyslexia and inclusive practiceKirsten McAleese20 March 2019 9:43
I found the course itself highly informative and rather challenging in some task areas, although, especially considering this course is to inform and even teach people how to present tasks and subjects in a dyslexia friendly manner, I found however, there was an information overload when presenting information online. I realise it may be my own dyspraxia and dyslexia kicking in but, as I have moved through the introduction course, I have found myself learning how to overcome the difficulties of presentation and I can now approach things in a calm manner to help me learn effectively. Making the screen bigger when viewing work online has been a fantastic help to me which makes me think I will be able to understand and help learners with dyslexia an/or other developmental problems too.
Very useful and informative, but not very well-built. I couldn't see my certificate of completion, which apparently lots of people had issues with as well.
I do not see any badges that I earned for completion of this course.
