Module 1 - SLD theory, reading and law

Monday 18 June 2012 10:00 – 17:00

Royal Preston Hospital Education Centre, Preston, PR2 9HT

Module content

  • SLD theory
  • reading
  • the law surrounding disability
  • assessing reading


The price per module is £110 for BIOS members and £190 for non-members.

To keep the price down, lunch is not included. Delegates who require overnight accommodation must arrange for it themselves.

The price includes:

  • all lectures
  • lecture materials
  • post-course assessment
  • certification
  • opportunity to attend the visual stress clinic in Glasgow
  • ongoing mentoring.

The modules can be taken in any order, and delegates may take individual modules. To meet all competency standards all modules are advised; however these can be taken over a period of time.

For those who are already working in the field, attendance at the training may not be required. In such cases the assessment can be taken for that part of the competency without the need to attend the training. Please contact Dr Nadia Northway to discuss this option
