Dyslexia Centre

 ‘The Dyslexia Centre gives outstanding support and guidance to all teachers in the support of pupils with specific learning difficulties and this enables the school to teach these pupils within the mainstream classes. The Centre has developed an outstanding external reputation and now trains teachers throughout the authority and beyond.’ (Ofsted November 2014.)


We believe that every child with dyslexia deserves to reach their potential and to discover and enjoy their talents. With our support children are given the best chance to overcome the challenges they face, together we find the strategies that will help them become fully independent learners enabling them to access the curriculum, articulate and express their ideas.

Did you know, Mark Sherin, the Manager of the Lyndhurst Dyslexia Centre, is involved as an advisor in developing the ‘train the trainers’ materials/ Department for Education (DfE)-funded project for the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).


The DfE-funded project

There are now 45 events organised around the country, offering free places to teachers to train two teachers per school in Awareness of Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD).


These teachers commit to cascading the materials to their colleagues. Each venue will hold 200 delegates.


There are separate events for primary, secondary and post 16 providers (including FE and apprenticeship providers).
