Training in Dyslexia and SpLD

GoLexia is renowned for its high quality training – we offer specifically tailored training packages that can be delivered in the workplace, or at a venue that we can arrange for you. We train school staff, employers, LA officers, parents/carers, organisations – in fact there’s no-one who wouldn’t benefit from our training.

For example, did you know that when you take your Hazard Perception test when learning to drive, if you have specific learning difficulties, you are entitled to a reader to read the questions to you? We can train the driving agencies in the implications of SpLD and how they should approach any differentiation.

Training can be full or half –day, or just a couple of hours. It is informative and interactive and can be as formal or informal as you like – we tailor our training to your specifications.

“My 9 year-old son’s reading age was below 6 years when tested at school, but after 3 months of individual tuition from GoLexia, not only is his reading age now measurable, but also his comprehension age has shot up to 11 years 2 months. And his self-esteem has improved no end!”
Mrs. B. , Monmouthshire

“I recently attended a training course delivered by GoLexia and found it interesting, stimulating and interactive. Loved the way the course leader interacted with us and valued our input.”

“Having dyslexia and Asperger’s Syndrome made it hard work on my degree course. But with specialist one-to-one tuition, the written work became less challenging and I stopped dreading deadlines. I graduated in the summer with a 2:1, which I know I would not have achieved without the support of GoLexia.”
S.C., Cardiff

“The course leader was very knowledgeable and engaging. She gave everyone a chance to have their say and respected the fact that, as teaching assistants, we understand our pupils’ needs and have a great deal of input into their education.”
Teaching Assistant, Newport

“We were so worried that our daughter was not achieving her potential at school but had been told that she wasn’t ‘low enough’ to be tested for dyslexia. Thankfully, a friend put us in touch with GoLexia and after a diagnostic assessment and advice from them, we now have the confidence to be able to talk to the SENCo about her difficulties and what school should be doing to help her.”
Dr. T., Cardiff

“I’ve had one-to-one support from various individuals during my degree courses, but none of them have ‘got me’ the way Eileen, from GoLexia, does. Now I am doing a Masters degree, it’s great to know that she understands my dyslexia and the way I approach writing.”
C.B. Barry

“GoLexia helped me get a 2:1 in my degree – thanks to the tuition and support I received from Eileen at GoLexia, I was able to complete my assignments and finish my degree in Modern Music at Newport Uni.”
Seth Cutler

"I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge how impressed we were with Eileen. She carried out the assessment with much tact and sensitivity and used every opportunity to strengthen my sons self esteem and confidence. Her calm presence was very reassuring for both my son and for me."
