“The wealth of information given in the course material was very interesting and informative”
First launched in May 2002, ICEP Europe’s dyslexia course is designed to meet the need for increasing and flexible specialist training in dyslexia, as highlighted in the recent Rose Report on dyslexia. A comprehensive course of more than 20 hours duration, it offers a framework for understanding the nature of dyslexia and provides the practical skills and strategies essential for detecting and responding to the needs of students with learning difficulties arising from dyslexia. A whole school approach to dyslexia and learning support is recommended and outlined, with an emphasis on effective collaboration.
We are delighted to announce that the course content has now been fully revised and updated by Dr Gavin Reid.

“This has been the best online course I have participated in. It provided me with a better understanding of dyslexia and gave excellent strategies in helping pupils with dyslexia.”

“It's completely changed my outlook on children with special learning needs; the checklists will prove a great resource to have at hand. I never imagined how much dyslexia can affect a child’s life and will definitely be more sensitive towards their needs and efforts! I'll definitely participate in a similar on-line course in the future and would highly recommend this course to any teacher!”
