Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre Summer School

Teachers! Learn about Dyslexia and make new friends!

Do you live abroad, are too far away to attend every week or are too busy to take time off during term time for a full course?
Help is at hand, come and join us for our one week summer school!

Our summer school is aimed at professionals working in mainstream schools both in the UK and abroad who want to enhance their skills so as to make their teaching even more effective and fun. A variety of multisensory teaching strategies will be shown, which will enhance the learning of dyslexics and non-dyslexics alike.

This specially designed course will give an overview of the current research into dyslexia and the risk factors and indicators of the condition. Other specific learning difficulties which commonly co-occur with dyslexia will also be discussed. Click for more details on our one week professional summer school!

At HADC 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.
