Leicester City Council’smission is to provide services for the people, communities and businesses within the city of Leicester, which is the largest city in the East Midlands.

Part of this service is to provide support and training for teachers and teaching assistants in schools within the Leicester area.

The Complex Learning, Communication and Interaction (LCI) Team, part of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Support Service, aim to provide this support on an individual, group or whole school basis so that pupils with complex learning needs can be included in school life.

Devised in association with the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), the programme has been designed to enable teachers and teaching assistants to support and assess learners up to the age of 18 with specific learning differences (dyslexia) in a practice based setting.
