April 10 - 13, 2017

Neuro-development of Words - NOW!

Foundations for Speech, Language, Reading and Spelling

Study of in-depth phonological awareness leading to efficient acquisition of literacy skills                    

with Dr. T.W. Conway, Neuro-psychologist, USA

This one-week course teaches students (children, as well as adults) awareness of the mouth movements in speech sounds in order to improve phonological awareness.  Poor phonological awareness is a core deficit in dyslexia; good phonological awareness is a pre-requisite for literacy acquisition. This training leads to impressive gains in speech, language, reading and spelling.

Note – This programme replaces the LiPS (Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Programme) 



Welcome to the Dyslexia Association

Welcome to the Dyslexia Association of Trinidad and Tobago

The Dyslexia Association is a volunteer organization which was formed in 1990 by a group of teachers and parents concerned for their dyslexic children.  The Dyslexia Association is a Registered Charity.

The aims of The Dyslexia Association:

  •  To be a support group for dyslexics, parents and teachers
  • To educate the community about these often misunderstood learning differences which affect so many of our bright and talented children
  • To train as many teachers as possible in methods for teaching dyslexics
  • To work with the Ministry of Education in an attempt to have a Specially Trained Teacher in every school

What we do

Conduct Training Courses in Specific Methods for Teaching Dyslexics.

Refer children and adult dyslexics for screening and specialist tutoring.

The Bursary Fund Committee raises funds to help finance lessons for students whose parents would find it difficult to manage these individualized lessons.
The Association also has a register of Educational Psychologists for referral for assessments.
Conduct Public awareness sessions on Dyslexia and related learning difficulties.
