Identification, assessment and monitoring

A key attribute of a Dyslexia Friendly Centre is the willingness to respond quickly to perceived needs without waiting for a formal assessment. This inclusive, dyslexia friendly response comes from class teachers who are empowered to identify learning issues and respond appropriately as part of their day to day teaching. There are clear referral procedures for identification, assessment and monitoring through a ‘staged approach’.

Response to need

In a dyslexia friendly lecture at Alpha Training learners are supported to be the best they can be. A range of strategies promote effective teaching and learning for all learners:

  • class, group and individual learning;
  • recognition and use of different learning styles;
  • flexible teaching;
  • differentiation of the ways in which pupils may record information;
  • differentiated assessments;
  • individual target marking to highlight selected key elements;
  • out of class opportunities for small group or 1:1 support.
