This free guide booklet produced by our friends at nasen gives some fantastic advice for supporting specific learning difficulties (Dyslexia) in a mainstream secondary school environment.
About Axcis and nasen
Nasen is the UK’s leading organisation supporting those who work with or care for children and young people with special and additional educational needs and disabilities. Nasen supports all staff including SENCOs, leaders, teachers, governors and teaching assistants in meeting the needs of the pupils in schools and settings through promoting education, training, development and support. Nasen also reaches a huge readership through their journals: British Journal of Special Education, Support for Learning, Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs and the magazine Special.
Axcis has been supporting nasen for a number of years and our relationship has gone from strength to strength. From sponsoring key events and exhibitions to contributing to publications and the SEND Gateway, a valuable online resource for SEND professionals, Axcis are pleased to be affiliated with an organisation doing such great work.
The guide aims to:
help the SENCO in establishing a consistent whole-school approach to meeting the needs of pupils with dyslexia
support all teachers and support staff in developing a dyslexia-friendly learning environment
develop teaching and learning strategies that make the curriculum accessible to learners with dyslexia
suggest resources which SENCOs and teachers can access to support pupils’ learning and help them develop coping strategies.
