The Madras Dyslexia Association is conducting its six–week–long Intensive Teacher Training Certifi cate Programme from January 30 to March 14. The aim of this programme is to empower people to help children with Specific Learning Disability. The course will benefit parents, psychologists, teachers and therapists who handle children with Specific Learning Disability.

Candidates need to be graduates with good communication skills to enrol for the programme. Children in main stream schools are often misunderstood and are termed lazy or adamant. They struggle in schools due to the lack of identifi cation of SLD and consequent remediation. These children can be helped only by trained special educators. People undergoing training can identify and remediate these children, who can cope in mainstream school with a little hand—holding.
