      Outlines of two heads with the words Dyslexia and Inclusive PracticeThis free module aims to provide teachers and local authority staff with a deeper understanding of dyslexia and inclusive practice within the context of Scottish Education.  It was developed to support the recommendations of the 2014 Education Scotland Review: Making Sense: Education for Children and Young People with Dyslexia in Scotland

      Supporting Dyslexia, Inclusive Practice and Literacy is designed to support teachers and local authority education officers to engage in reflective practice and to develop a deeper understanding of dyslexia and inclusive practice in relation to learners who are dyslexic.

      The module is the second of three linked modules supported by the Making Sense Working Group and written by the Addressing Dyslexia Toolkit Working Group, Dyslexia Scotland and Education Scotland with the support of the Opening Educational Practices in Scotland project. All three modules use the General Teaching Council Scotland’s focus areas to support professional learning.
