Children with dyslexia need to be identified as early as possible so strategies can be put in place to help.
Do you know what to look for in your classroom?
About the Program
Nessy believes that all teaching professionals should have a basic knowledge of dyslexia and reading difficulties to identify and properly support struggling readers in their classroom. Our professional development training program is designed to quickly and conveniently provide the essential information that teachers need.
The training modules cover the identification of dyslexia, intervention strategies, accommodations and use of assistive technology among others. Each module is followed by a short quiz to review key concepts and assess learning. The training can be accessed on smartphone, tablet or computer and takes at least two hours to complete. Time spent training is logged and recorded, ensuring accountability for professional development work done and participants earn a formal certificate upon completion of the program.
“That was the MOST AMAZING PD program I have ever taken! I am shocked at how much more I needed to know and how clear I now see dyslexia. I can now start figuring out what kind of dyslexia my students have and how I can differentiate better with them. THANKS so much!!”

“I just finished watching all the modules of the Nessy Dyslexia training. I must say, I was VERY impressed. I was honestly expecting a “dry” presentation with someone talking and showing pages of charts and text. However, the cartoons were interesting, engaging and, at times, entertaining. They were all presented in easy to understand language, simple text and lists, and meaningful visuals. The connections from one module to the next was set up well.”
– Kelly MacDonald, Educator
