It is estimated that 10% of the world population has some form of learning difficulty such as dyslexia. If identified earlier in life, the remedial actions can help young people to achieve learning goals. In the Sri Lankan context, a lot of children with learning difficulties are deprived of the opportunity to achieve educational goals as most generalist primary teachers have minimal understanding of learning difficulties. The main aim of this impact development project is to design a teacher training module to raise the awareness of generalist primary class teachers in Sri Lanka on learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia, and their consequences in the teaching-learning process.
