Dyslexia Aware School
The purpose of the Dyslexia Aware School Quality Mark (DASQM) is to recognise the wonderful work being done in schools in relation to supporting students with Dyslexic Type Learning Needs (DTLN). This process challenges schools to examine the impact of their polices, processes and implementation practices in terms of supporting students with DTLN. It also celebrates the successful outcomes that these processes are providing to students.
Former Federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne said in 2014, at the Dyslexia Round-table forum: “I don’t want Dyslexia Aware Schools to just be boutique schools, I want every school across Australia to be a Dyslexia Aware School.”
