Event description

Description

The Dyslexia Association of Ireland will deliver a two-day training course aimed at Disability Officers, Youthreach staff involved in literacy assessments, Adult Literacy Resource Workers and Adult Education Guidance Counsellors. It is expected that participants on this training will administer these tests as part of their role.
