The Dyslexia for teachers online course is available in English and French. We also have a list of other resources and language versions below.
Please note that the courses in English and French are under review, but you can still access them as they appeared at Dyslexia and Literacy International web site.
This learning course is relevant to all teachers precisely because all teachers can expect to come across pupils with dyslexia to a greater or lesser degree in their classroom.
This course sets out to train all teachers in awareness and appropriate responses to learners of different learning abilities in an inclusive classroom setting. Preferably it will be used at the trainee stage for teachers before they stand in front of a class.
Ce cours est pertinent pour tous les enseignants précisément parce que tous peuvent s’attendre à être confrontés avec des enfants dyslexiques ‘dans une plus ou moins grande mesure’ au sein de leurs classes.
Ce cours a pour objectif de former tous les enseignants à se conscientiser et à fournir une réponse appropriée aux enfants présentant des habiletés d’apprentissage diverses dans un cadre inclusif. Il sera de préférence utilisé au stade d’apprentissage du métier d’enseignant avant que les participants ne soient confrontés à une classe.
