Help for teachers on dyslexia and VI

New learning materials aim to help staff teaching those with dyslexia or visual impairments.

A new service aims to help teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants support those who struggle to read standard print.

Developed by the charities Dyslexia Action and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), Load2Learn is an online service providing customisable resources to create personalised learning materials, in print or Braille versions, for students with visual impairments, dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

Curriculum materials covering all key stages, including textbooks, test papers and images, can be downloaded in a range of file formats and then adapted to suit the personal reading needs of students. The service currently offers more than 1,500 titles and 1,000 images.

The service is designed to help staff cut down on administrative tasks, such as photocopying, enabling them to spend more time with students.

Developed with funding from the Department for Education, Load2Learn also provides guidance for teaching staff on how best to support learners with visual impairments or dyslexia, and information on sources of training.
