Certificate in Dyslexia and Other Specific Learning Difficulties - Level 2

Certificate in Dyslexia and Other Specific learning Difficulties

Approximately 15% of people are affected by Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) including dyslexia, dyscalculia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). As these SpLDs are so prevalent throughout society, developing our understanding is increasingly important.
The qualification is one we have written in conjunction with NCFE. In order to get it approved for funding we have had to give it an “umbrella” title for funding purposes, this is Level 2 Certificate In Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties.
In our resource we have put more of a slant towards the Dyslexia element, hence NCFE allowing us to call our resource books Dyslexia & Other Specific Learning Difficulties. We have put a paragraph in the workbooks which tell the learner the Certificate they receive will be the Level 2 Certificate In Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties.
