Courses for Primary School Teachers 2017
The Dyslexia Association of Ireland runs Dyslexia Courses for Primary School Teachers. Places on these courses are limited so early application is advisable, and we run these courses several times each year, in different locations, in response to demand.
These courses are offered to qualified primary level teachers who are registered or eligible for registration with the Teaching Council. The course may be of particular relevance to Learning Support and Resource Teachers. At the end of the course teachers will have an understanding of what dyslexia is, how it can be identified and how it can be supported in classrooms and schools.
