This fun and practical workshop is based on recent research into the nature of memory. It explores how to use both left and right brain approaches to remember spellings.
Our specialist dyslexia teachers support children, SENDCos, teachers and teaching assistants with creating dyslexia-friendly approaches with individual children and across the whole school.
We are experts in delivering highly effective teaching programmes which use a range of multi-sensory techniques, and complement the specific strengths of each student and transfer skills to the classroom.
10% of the students in your school are likely to have dyslexia. We can assist you in identifying the specific needs of those students who are experiencing difficulties. We provide guidance and training for the schools; developing the skills, strategies and knowledge for all staff and helping you to embed a dyslexia-friendly approach across the whole school and beyond.

Specialist dyslexia teaching and support can benefit those children who need additional support in their learning. Our team has been specifically trained to deliver highly effective teaching programmes which use a range of multi-sensory techniques that complement the specific strengths of each pupil and these ideas can also be shared within training sessions.

Our specialist dyslexia teachers have expert knowledge in improving the teaching and learning of children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other SpLDs. They can work with specific members of staff or across the whole school to develop the provision.
This helps to provide your school with the skills and resources to support pupils with SEND over time. The range of support will be bespoke to you and the needs of your staff.

This dyslexia-friendly environment package includes:
People with the specific learning difficulty known as dyscalculia have a difficulty in processing number concepts and mastering basic numeracy skills. Our dyslexia specialist teachers can assess for, teach and support children with dyscalculia.
Like with dyslexia, the team are specifically trained to deliver highly effective teaching programmes which use a range of multi-sensory techniques that complement the specific strengths of each pupil. Training, audits, staff support and guidance for children with dyscalculia can be provided by our AMBDA qualified specialists.
Children with dyslexia can sometimes have co-occurring difficulties, such as dyspraxia; should this be the case, our specialist teachers will be able to offer support to help the child progress and move forward in their learning.
It can be extremely frustrating for pupils who have difficulties in reading and writing. Our dyslexia specialists will work in your school for two hours per week, with a group of six children in lower KS2 and six children in upper KS2.
This support will help pupils to develop their confidence in all aspects of reading performance, spelling difficulties and with verbal and visual processing.
Access arrangements, which are undertaken by a qualified assessor, ensure that pupils are able to access exams, tests and assessments, and have the same opportunity to demonstrate their skills and abilities as other pupils.
The One Education team support schools to make sure pupils achieve their full potential in exams by completing assessments to determine access to:
Students going into further education with a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, may be eligible for an allowance to help with the extra costs that they incur as a direct result of their needs. Students often use the allowance to buy a laptop and cover other expenses as a result of their learning difficulty.
One Education can help by completing a detailed assessment with the student, we will provide the student with the recent, full (16+) diagnostic assessment report required to support their application.
Students can apply at any time before or during their course, One Education can organise this through the school, college or, on an individual basis.
