AchieveAbility sessions for staff in schools and colleges to raise awareness of Dyslexia

All learners have different ways of recognising, understanding and remembering information. The learning differences faced by SpLD learners are not exclusive but can be based on a learning approach. The majority of learners, of all abilities, use a combination of preferred learning styles.

AchieveAbility has found that by making class learning more accessible to SpLD learners, staff can, in fact, make learning more accessible to all learners in a class.

The intellectual gains to be made by this approach are substantial, contributing to increased attainment and achievement.
