The DysTEFL project succeeded in showing the need to train EFL teachers in order to reinforce support for dyslexic students in mainstream education and in developing excellent innovative EFL teacher training course and materials. The excellence of DysTEFL's course has been confirmed by the British Council’s ELTon award for “Excellence in Course Innovation”.

They reward educational resources that help English language learners and teachers to achieve their goals.
