Tired of searching for appropriate dyslexia courses? You can study this course to gain an understanding of specific learning difficulties, including dyslexia, dyscalculia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). You will learn about the range and characteristics of each learning difficulty or disorder, the importance of seeking a formal diagnosis of specific learning difficulties, how support for individuals can be provided in different settings and how attitudes, legislation and services related to specific learning difficulties have changed over time.

This course is split into four manageable units:

  • Signs, symptoms and diagnosis of specific learning difficulties
  • Living with a specific learning difficultly
  • Best practice relating to specific learning difficulties
  • Sources of information, support, legislation and guidance relevant to specific learning difficulties

This course can be studied purely online and is ideal for those who are happy to work independently using our fully supported on-line learning platform. For those local to Swindon, are returning to learning and would prefer to receive one-to-one support from a tutor, we offer a workbook option.
