Dyslexia Strategy Coaching
One-to-one coaching to assist you with organisational, memory and time management skills
WHAT IS DYSLEXIA STRATEGY TRAINING?
Dyslexia Strategy Training offers you the benefits of multi-sensory teaching methods that are clear and split into memorable chunks of information. Typical lengthy training courses can cause an overload of information which can result in a negative impact on your learning.
This principle is central to your training, which teaches that difficulties with Organisation, Reading and/or Writing should not make you feel inadequate & uses an approach that recognises that all of us process information, in a different way.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE A ONE-TO-ONE TRAINING COURSE FOR DYSLEXIA STRATEGY TRAINING?
Your training session enables your qualified instructor to concentrate on your specific business needs, with the aim of removing any necessary barriers to learning and enhance your strengths. Your trainer will endeavour to:
• Determine your individual learning needs

What our clients are saying about us...
"Veena was very good at not only training me on the software but also helping me get over a very tough year. Having never had any help for my Dyspraxia (diagnosed 22 years ago) and then having the training on Dragon & Inspiration has made a terrific difference. Having struggled to get Dragon to work in the past - its amazing the difference some training has made." - Karen Clarke (Kingston University)
“My trainer was extremely personable and I built an instant rapport with her. I was able to focus in on key issues very quickly and come up with practical strategies based around the way I work because of her training. The training was incredibly useful and I would definitely consider going back to Freedom of Speech for additional training in the future.” -Benjamin Brown (Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust)
Neil Wheeler delivered the software training in a friendly and easy to digest way. An excellent teacher!” - Robin Bower (IBM)
“Freedom was very helpful over the phone with a problem and I would recommend your company to many people. I was more astounded with the level of service I received from freedom of speech. With the training George gave me I found the material clear and easy to use, and has made it a lot easier and quicker. I would just like to thank freedom of speech for all the help they have given me to improve the work that I do.” - Tess Ashton (Leonard Cheshire Disability)
“The training material was very clear and accurate and I found it beneficial to use the simple flow charts that the trainer demonstrated with rather than just reading from a standard manual. The training was very useful.” - Jennie Pitcher (Buckingham Healthcare NHS Trust)
“The training exceeded my expectations as the trainer was very knowledgeable and more patient than I had expected. I am very confident with recommending Freedom of Speech to others.” - Claire Hewitt (Canterbury College)
"London Probation has had a very good experience of working with Freedom of Speech over a number of years, particularly in relation to the understanding of, and provision of specialist assistive technology such as Dragon Naturally Speaking and TextHelp Read and Write Gold, and training of staff with manual dexterity difficulties, dyslexia or other neurodiverse conditions. They have taken care to ensure that the recommendations they make for assistive technology adjustments meet the requirements of the individual staff member and are compatible with the Probation IT systems and working practice. They have provided very good group and individual training sessions and an effective support service. This has helped our staff to improve the quality of their work and helped the organisation improve its understanding of good practice in this area in relation to both employment practice and service delivery." - John Hague (Assistive Technology Manager, London Probation Service)
“The session was good and interactive. Having the training materials that Freedom of Speech provided helped me considerably. All aspects were covered in the training and I felt confident in using the software in my day to day working life.” - Islam Shirazul (NHS South London CSU)
