The information this course provided me with and gave me access to regarding dyslexia was highly relevant and gave me a very good insight into the topic. The additional resources such as references to websites, video clips and TeD Talks were excellent.

The course was very informative but I felt rather than having promotional videos of products available I would have appreciated knowing the experiences of people using the equipment or programs and which would be considered the most beneficial.
Also free products would be helpful for students/schools that can’t afford access to all that is available.

This course was very detailed and heavy in content. Some sections were not very practical in it’s application in the classroom. Module 5 was the only useful module that really supplied the information that I needed.
