What is The D.T.A.?
The Dyslexic Teachers' Association
or The D.T.A. is a charitable organisation which aims to provide information, advice and guidance to teachers and trainees
with dyslexia, and to the colleagues of dyslexic teachers.
Currently we are providing this
support through this website and through e-mail. However, we hope to expand the ways in which we can provide advice during
this academic year, (see our constitution for more details).
Our goal is to see that Dyslexic
teachers are recognised in schools and that they are supported effectively throughout their training and professional development.
Who are The D.T.A.'s members?
The D.T.A. was founded on the 21st of May 2005 by MrsTreley Woolger, who is the director of the organisation.
Mrs Woolger trained as a teacher at The University of Wales, Aberystwyth and is now in her second year of teaching
in Milton Keynes where she holds the post of Assitant SENCo and Teacher of Drama and LAPD.
