• Free Course

    This free introductory module aims to provide practitioners who work in a CLD setting with an improved awareness of what dyslexia is, its impact, how it is assessed in different contexts and how it can be supported within an inclusive learning environment.

    During the module, you can test your knowledge by undertaking some different activities. At the end of the module, you will be asked to complete an assessed quiz. If you gain a score of at least 60% in the assessed quiz, have attempted all of the activities and have clicked through all the pages of the module you will earn a digital badge.  

    The module includes a reflective log. The activities in the module can be completed on your own but you can also use them to support group work with colleagues.

    It is anticipated that this module will take between 2 – 3 hours to complete. However the length of time will be determined by a range of factors such as prior knowledge and the depth of learning undertaken.

    This module has been developed and written by a collaborative partnership between Education Scotland, Dyslexia Scotland and the CLD Standards Council Scotland with support from the Specific Learning Difficulties Forum which is co-hosted by Education Scotland and Dyslexia Scotland. Membership comprises practitioners who work within the Community Learning & Development sector in Scotland.

    The module is accessed through the OpenLearn Create service from the Open University
