A 2-part course.
Part 1 15/09/2021 - Dyslexia- Identification and Understanding Difficulties associated with the Diagnosis
A practical workshop examining the signs and symptoms of dyslexia and how teachers might recognise it in the classroom. We will look at the specific difficulties associated with the diagnosis and will use basic assessments and checklists suitable for classroom and school use to help teachers plan to assess the children. At the end of this workshop the participants will understand better what dyslexia feels like from the perspective of the person with dyslexia and in what areas of education and daily living the difficulties appear.

During this workshop we will examine differentiation techniques and resources that will help students with dyslexia to access the curriculum and to reach their full potential.

• Participants will learn how to identify dyslexia and the various difficulties associated with it
• Participants will understand what life feels like from the dyslexic student’s perspective
• Participants will understand some resources and methods to help the dyslexic pupil reach their full potential
