The Literacy and Dyslexia-SpLD Professional Development Framework: Teacher Training
The Framework Statements across all six strands are available for download from here. The statements of recommended skills and knowledge are mapped against the criteria for ATS, AMBDA, SASC and the BDA Dyslexia Friendly Schools Quality Mark.
These statements may be used to evaluate existing courses or develop new ones. The Framework has also been used as a basis for student assignments and to benchmark individual student progress before and after course completion.
