This is a service for Devon schools, teachers, teaching assistants, parents and possibly older students (e.g. for information about the DSA and HE). We offer support about any aspect of literacy difficulties. The service is not restricted to the problems of students who have been identified as dyslexic, but relevant to any students who are struggling to develop any aspect of literacy or anyone working with such students.
Please make sure that teachers and teaching assistants know about the service and how to contact us. Your EP will have a poster you could copy and access to a pdf you could print from. Also, please let parents know, possibly by including the telephone number in a newsletter. We get many calls from parents who are anxious and we can save you and your teachers a lot of time – sometimes they just want to be reassured that a school acknowledges the existence of dyslexia and communicating the Helpline details can achieve this.
This is a confidential service funded by Devon LA
