You need to sign up with your name as parent/guardian of the child. The services are all set up for parents to navigate in order to best support their child.
2. What is the Community Forum and how do I use it?
We love the community forum. It is open to everyone and is there for you to be able to ask our specialist team a question and also meet other parents of fabulously dyslexic children too. You can connect with other parents and the Dyslexia-Academy by clicking on 'people' within the top bar once logged in. Then to tag your 'Friends' within comments you just add the '@' sign before their name in the comments. You can also tag certain groups of people e.g. parents who may have children in a certain live class and also tag certain courses that you may need assistance with. For a helpful short video on how to access and use the Community Forum watch this :

4. What are the live lessons?
The live lessons are a fun weekly Dyslexia-Academy online live lesson. We keep our live lesson groups small to ensure that you are being provided with the very best personalised dyslexia support. The live lessons focus on a range of key areas including: Sequencing Skills, Self-Esteem, Visual/Verbal Short Term and Working Memory, Visual Tracking Skills and Phonological Awareness. Gold Members can access one Live lesson per week in addition to our special edition lessons that we add to regularly focusing on areas such as 'Developing the use of ICT', 'Metacognition Strategies', 'Phonological Awareness Fun' and 'Multi-Sensory Spelling using mnemonics'. These sessions are mainly devised for children aged 6-11. For information about services for our older students please see Zoom club below. Once you join as a Gold Member, a video demonstrating how to access the Live lessons will also be sent in your confirmation email.
5. What are the Zoom lessons?
Our Zoom lessons for Gold Members ages 11-15 are currently held monthly. They are a great way for the older student to meet others who may have similar strengths and difficulties, boost self-esteem and also develop some key skills in working memory that may help with independent study. We are hoping to provide more services for the older learner very soon, so please do keep checking back....
