   Course Summary
The world of employment is altogether different from the world of education and the workshop will provide insight into the common challenges faced by the SpLD specialist in the context of the workplace.
   Course Detail


The environment, the cultures, the awareness of specific learning difficulties, the audiences for the reports and the demands on the employee and employer alike make the workplace very different. The individual employee is often in a difficult position and the issues can be complicated and tricky. The workplace is more pressurised, more demanding and tougher. 

Greater awareness of the complexities will enable the specialist to prepare for and manage the processes more successfully. The workshop explores these issues in relation to the approach to the diagnostic report and the workplace needs assessment, including liaising with managers and advising employers on good practice and reasonable adjustments.

  • Reviewing principles of psychometrics, statistics, assessment and underlying theory
