  10. 10. “ This is the first time I've participated in learning in this format- it's an amazing form of professional development . I've learned so much about Dyslexia - I've just finished full-time working in a small village school where training opportunities were limited by financial constraints and now that I am a supply teacher there will be even less opportunity to attend training courses. I think all LEAs should adopt this approach - thank you very much.” Webinar participant
