Technology is fundamental to helping dyslexics (and those with other SpLD) learn and achieve academically. 
Our workshops familiarise attendees with the vast range of technologies available and instruct how they can support learners.

IT can help schools overcome the time and resource constraints that persistently result in learners with SpLD performing poorly.

TODAY's Technology Can rasise attainment levels for all.

Workshops - What do they cover?

We introduce the vast range of technology available, such as apps and software programmes, to help transform learning and ultimately boost confidence and motivation. 

Each workshop provides a good understanding of: 

  • What is available

  • The cost

  • Pros and cons of each solution

  • Real life problems encountered

  • How problems have been overcome

A wealth of information is provided to enable attendees to get up and running using products themselves quickly. 

Who should attend?

Learning support staff, Heads of both acacemics and pastoral care. class teachers, and teaching assistants, anyone who is involved in teaching children with SpLD.

There are many benefits of inviting the parents to attend. This increase partnership and collaboration between school and home.  Parents are often a willing capable and underutlised resources. Their attendance is critical when schools don’t have the sufficient budget to purchase life changing technology.

What people say about our workshops?

Caroline is very knowledgeable and very able to present to an audience. She speaks very well and managed to keep my interest levels high throughout. I felt I learned a lot that was worthwhile. Her presentation went across all age groups which would be suitable for both primary and secondary.

Many thanks for the excellent presentation last evening. As an ancient specialist teacher/tutor I have heard many talks on the use of IT to support children with SEND and yours was the most pleasant, informative and straightforward. I usually nod off!
