We organise a course for parents on dyslexia. The course is a six-hour course which is delivered over two evenings in an online format. Topics covered include:

  • What is dyslexia?
  • The assessment and afterwards
  • Understanding school & supports that are available
  • Self-advocacy
  • Strategies in school & at home
  • Self-esteem and well being


The course aims to:

  • Give parents an overview of dyslexia in the context of the Irish education system
  • Provide parents with the key information they need to act as advocates on behalf of their children
  • Equip parents with some practical strategies they can implement themselves to help their children.


The fee per parent is €50 for DAI members and €75 for non-members. Pre-booking is essential, as places are limited.
