Dyslexia-SpLD Trust coalition to support schools

Wednesday 1st April 2015

The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust continues its work to provide expert advice, support materials and training on literacy and specific learning difficulties, and dyslexia.

A recent government grant to support the work of our coalition will help over 3500 school staff to undertake free training in supporting children and young people with dyslexia, specific learning difficulties and literacy difficulties.

Dyslexia SpLD Chair, Sir Jim Rose, said: "Since 2013 the Dyslexia SpLD Trust has reached over 34,588 teachers. The Trust has brought together a wealth of expertise to help parents, school staff and local authorities access robust research and examples of high quality teaching. Our 'Interventions for Literacy'  materials are recognised as easily accessible, leading- edge resources on what works in supporting children and young people who struggle to read and write.

We are grateful to the Driver Youth Trust for hosting the Dyslexia SpLD Trust. Our membership includes: the Driver Youth Trust; the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre; the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS); Xtraordinary People, and Springboard for Children."
