We offer specialist, individual tuition in small groups to students (6-18) with dyslexia; including the emotional and confidence aspects of dyslexia. Workshops also provides support and advice for their families. Workshops runs for two hours, once-a- week, during the autumn and spring terms. The tutors are qualified teachers who have undertaken additional training in teaching methods best suited to students with dyslexia.
DAI maintains a list of tutors nationwide who are willing to offer individual tuition. These are trained teachers who have also taken a course in teaching children and adults with dyslexia. A good tutor can help someone with dyslexia to develop their skills and their self-esteem. One-to-one sessions can be tailored to each individual’s needs and pace of work. Sessions can be focused on the specific areas where the individual is currently struggling.
The Readable Project is an online book club specifically designed for young people with dyslexia. Each group has 6 young people who are of a similar age and enjoy stories centred on the same theme. It is facilitated by a qualified teacher who has been trained in how best to support young people with dyslexia.
