About this course

This self study course looks at the Diagnostic Assessment Report (DAR) which accompanies a dyslexia diagnosis. These reports contain terminology and statistics that can be challenging for the non-specialist to interpret. This course helps to demystify the DAR. It is suitable for SENDCOs and teachers who want to understand and make use of the information contained within a report.  This is one of four courses available that help to develop a better understanding of dyslexia and offer practical suggestions for working with children and students of school age.ISBN 9781292410258
