      Outlines of two heads with the words Dyslexia and Inclusive PracticeIntroduction to Dyslexia and Inclusive Practice is the first of three free online modules developed to complement the 2015 Education Scotland Route Map for Dyslexia and Inclusive Practice and support the professional standards from the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

      This free module aims to provide teachers and local authority staff with an awareness of what dyslexia is, its impact and how it can be supported within an inclusive school community. It may also be of interest if you work in the voluntary sector or simply have an interest in dyslexia and inclusive practice.
