Hello There

I'm Riss Leung (Chief Literacy Lover and Consultant at Oz Lit Teacher) my speciality is taking super complex research, theory and concepts breaking them down into understandable, practical advice and ideas for busy teachers and leaders.

That's exactly what I've done in this course, Dyslexia For Teachers. 

I've read and listened to loads of research articles, books, blog posts, podcasts and websites, and I've condensed all the best bits of it down into this 2.5 hour course.
