Welcome to the course
Introduction 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.
If you complete the module, you will receive a digital badge and a Statement of Participation (which can take up to 24 hours to be issued to your email address and appear in your profile).
To enrol on this module, sign in first then click on the enrol button (the grey button alongside the social media buttons).
