Effective Writing Skills for People with Dyslexia – Training Course Outline

Dyslexia affects at least four to five percent of the British population, meaning that nearly three million of us are affected by it to varying degrees. Like everyone else, though, people with dyslexia need to write emails, reports and other work-related documents. Producing clear, concise, well-structured documents can seem difficult and take longer than it should.

We are experts in helping people to communicate effectively with their colleagues and clients. Although there isn't a cure for dyslexia, there are things you can do to improve your ability to write effectively. This dyslexia writing course offers a range of suggestions and experiences, giving you the chance to see what works for you and hints and tips to take away and apply to your own circumstances.
