Think of it as six great sessions packed with tools and strategies that are going to help you support your children at home – or in your classroom – the way they learn!

This course is co-created by: Claire Ashmore #GrowingChoices, and Rachel Barwell #MasterDyslexia. Adapted from the course “Why Tyrannosaurus But Not If?’ designed by Richard Whitehead, Davis Dyslexia Association Director UK and Africa

This is a live online, facilitated, interactive and engaging, practical, hands-on course with tools and strategies you can use straight away with your child or learners. The course is held over over 6 weeks as 6×2-hr sessions. It is done as stand-alone but also has been done by parents before their child starts a 1-1 Davis programme to give the best support post-programme. Either way the “Why Ty” is very useful. 

Note the online delivery days applicable to your timezone.

Help your bright but struggling learners succeed with ease. Dyslexia is a true gift once you know how to work with it. In this course you will discover a clear way to resolve dyslexic confusion for your child or learners.
