We have a member of staff who suffers from dyslexia and it is affecting his ability to do his work. I am looking to get him some sort of assistance and / or training to improve his performance. The role is primarily analysing financial accounts. Does anyone have any tips on what we could do or any packages that we could purchase or any companies that provide training that would help.
Any assistance would be gratefully received.

  2. Try your local college
    I have a similar situation; an employee who attempted a supervisory management course and relied (too) heavily on others to help complete assignments. It then transpired that they suffered Dyslexia, and did not complete the programme. I have talked to our local FE college and they are organising their student learning support people to contact me to see what additional help they might be able to offer.
    When I spent some time as a voluntary literacy tutor at my local FE College, I was assigned to someone with dyslexia problems. It is a very complex complaint and requires specialist support from an appropriately trained coach/tutor (of which I was not!).

  3. Try the Probationary Service
    At a recent TEC meeting, I listened to an interesting presentation regarding the training being given by the probationary service for people with dyslexia. You might like to try them for some info. Jenny

  4. I am mentoring and tutoring a number dyslexic

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me on [email protected] if you would like some good book references and a copy of the material I’ve put together for the person I’m mentoring/coaching/tutoring.
