At Dyslexia Matters® we are a team of friendly with caring, approachable hands-on practitioners.  Our mission is to help people with specific learning differences and those who work with them.

When you train with us you will experience a warm and supportive learning environment.  You will also receive generous assessor input while gaining up to date, practical knowledge and access to online resources.  This will place you at the cutting edge of Dyslexia.

Interactive Online Dyslexia Training

We offer a range of interactive online and blended learning training options, led by Julia and Liz, the directors of Dyslexia Matters.

They have a wealth of practical, everyday knowledge about how to support learners with dyslexia.  Our support learners have been heads of a specialist school for learners with dyslexia and associated difficulties. They both have personal as well as professional experience of the day to day realities faced by learners with specific learning differences of all ages. They are experts in their field and have written national qualifications, collaborated with universities and been recognised as outstanding practitioners. They have shared their expertise with schools, colleges, businesses and job centres, instigating innovative approaches and interventions, stemming from their wealth of experience. They have chosen a highly qualified team of hands-on practitioners to complement and promote their mission: to impact learners in a personalised and practical way. All assessors are Specialist Teachers, including the Course Manager, offering knowledgeable advice and appropriate guidance at all times.
