FREE Training for Schools
"Every teacher is a teacher of SEN". Is this true in your school?
The new Code of Practice states that all teaching and support staff should be trained and have awareness of quality teaching for students with SEN.
Helen Arkell in association with The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust is offering FREE TRAINING this term to schools who want to fulfil this statement and be able to say so on their website and school letterhead.
A professional development certificate will be given to all schools who complete the training.
Take advantage of this time-limited offer and register your interest now and we will provide all the information you need to participate.

At Helen Arkell dyslexia is our speciality
We believe dyslexic people are special, and we specialise in dyslexic people. All dyslexics are individuals, and a large part of our work is dedicated to identifying those children and adults alike who are faced with the challenges of dyslexia.
Dyslexia is much more common than most people think and affects as many as one in every eight people. If identified early most dyslexics quickly learn to cope well, are at no real disadvantage in life, and often find their dyslexia a positive asset in later years.
