Beyond Dyslexia: Comprehension Unpacked

Coming in 2023!

How Learning Links courses can help you

We can help you feel better equipped to support children and adolescents with Dyslexia.

Our Dyslexia Decoded courses are part of a suite of professional learning webinars and courses developed by Learning Links.

Dr Samantha Hornery is an experienced primary school teacher and expert in learning difficulties. Samantha Hornery has 20 years of experience in designing and delivering Dyslexia interventions and as National Education Manager at Learning Links has created this suite of professional learning webinars and courses to support you to support children and adolescents with Dyslexia.


How to continue your Dyslexia journey

Our webinar series can be your starting point. But we know from our day-to-day work in schools that teachers today need more. Short on time and with student needs more diverse than ever, the access to practical, classroom applicable learning with evidence-based resources is what many teachers are looking for.

That’s why we developed Dyslexia Decoded; three short courses to deepen your understanding of Dyslexia and offer evidence-informed practical strategies and resources to provide interventions for children and adolescents with Dyslexia.

Each course is delivered in a self-paced professional learning format, so you can access the content wherever and whenever you like for up to six months.

Participants are also able to access weekly live presentations of each of the modules with Dr Samantha Hornery.
