Supporting Adults with Dyslexia and Co-occurring difficulties , Level 4
Why supporting adults with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties?
This unit provides a framework for the support of adults with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties in a variety of post-compulsory education environments. The holistic needs of the individual will be considered, as well as the barriers that adults can face once they leave school. Issues surrounding communication and support will be explored. Memory, attention and the environment will be reviewed as a foundation to support provision, whether in further or higher education, work-based training and apprenticeships, or other environments in which learning takes place with adults.
What can I expect from the course?
On completion, participants will be able to¹:
- Recognise the impact dyslexia has on day-to-day adult life
- Identify what support can be provided by the setting and locate external agencies that also offer support
- Demonstrate an understanding of underlying cognitive factors in dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties
