Membership Requirements

Membership is open to qualified teachers in SpLD and those studying for either the certificate or the diploma in SpLD, allied professionals and those with an interest in SpLD and wish to support the aims and activities of PATOSS. Patoss has widened its membership to include other professionals who are working in the field of specific learning difficulties.

Many of our members teach in schools and colleges. Many provide one-to-one tuition to students with specific learning difficulties. This includes assessment of current level of knowledge and ability, planning programmes of work, delivering those programmes, advising on the broader educational programme, and liaising with other professionals.
