This is a series of short, interactive online training resources for university staff which are designed to increase awareness of Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) in Higher Education.
The training resources: give staff an overview of each SpLD and the ways each of them overlap and co-occur; outline some of the difficulties that students with SpLDs can experience in HE; and, introduce staff to some of the key principles of inclusive curriculum design, curriculum delivery and assessment, and give them practical ideas to use to ensure accessibility.
The online training covers Dyselxia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia.
