NEW DfE contract for services
The Trust has been successful in securing a contract for services from the Department for Education for 2013-15. The contract covers 4 key areas of work; some new and some which build on our existing successes.
Providing guidance to schools and local authorities
An on-line supportive guide to equip professionals in Local Authorities, schools including academies, colleges and settings to deliver good practice in line with Special Educational Needs Reforms
Developed in line with changes to the Children and Families Act and the Code of Practice, this valuable guidance can be viewed here
Support and guidance for practitioners
The Literacy and Dyslexia-SpLD Professional Development Framework is now fully developed and readily available to schools, practitioners and anyone working with dyslexic learners or those with literacy difficulties. Our mission now is to ensure that all schools know how to access this collaboratively developed and freely available tool and Dyslexia Action and PATOSS will be leading this work with support from the British Dyslexia Association.
Providing online advice and resources for parents
Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, supported by British Dyslexia Association will oversee the development of a single comprehensive online source, aimed at parents and carers, for information on supporting children and young people with dyslexia/SpLD.
Supporting young people, including young offenders
This project, led by the British Dyslexia Association with collaboration from Dyslexia Action and Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, will involve two key elements:
* Consolidation of previous good practice and learning to develop a training package for those working with young offenders to improve identification and awareness of the needs of those young people with specific learning difficulties.
* Development and pilot of an ID card, to be used by Young Offenders to raise awareness of specific needs and to share information on accessibility as they move across agencies.Trust Report 2013-2015
