About Us

Patoss is the professional association of teachers of students with specific learning difficulties, for all those concerned with the teaching and support of pupils with SpLD, for example: dyslexic, dyspraxic, dyscalculic, ADHD. Membership is open to qualified teachers in SpLD and those studying for either the certificate or the diploma in SpLD. We also offer supporting and corporate memberships.

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.

We provide a range of publications, services and advice which are detailed on following pages.
