Dyslexia-Friendly Quality Mark (DFQM) - NZ
The Dyslexia-Friendly Quality Mark (DFQM) TM is a holistic initiative that promotes the creation of inclusive teaching and learning environments. It is based on a whole-organisation approach to becoming dyslexia-friendly, from board to management to learner-facing staff. The DFQM provides a benchmark for best practice, and organisations with the Quality Mark will be leaders and role models in the field.
The DFQM initiative was funded by New Zealand’s Tertiary Education Commission and led by Ako Aotearoa, New Zealand’s National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence. The DFQM was inspired by a similar initiative in the United Kingdom, but tailored to a New Zealand context.
