Dyslexia Awareness Training
There are huge benefits to employers in raising the awareness of your workforce about dyslexia. We want employers and employees to recognise the strengths as well as the difficulties that dyslexic adults experience at work. Dyslexia can often bring advantages. Companies generally include teams who plan, take and implement decisions to improve practice. The most effective teams are those where each member can offer alternative and complementary skills. People who experience dyslexia often think differently and may find new ways to solve problems. You may also have clients who are dyslexic and want to explore ways to engage more effectively with everyone you meet as part of your work
We are able to develop and deliver bespoke dyslexia awareness sessions for staff within an organisation, including managers and HR professionals to enable them to understand dyslexia and its impact in the workplace.
An initial awareness session would typically be a half day and may be followed up with further sessions developed to meet the needs of different staff.
However, we are able to tailor training packages to meet individual requirements. Please contact us by phone 01442 828035 or email.
