Event Details

How do we learn to read, write and spell? Why do some students struggle to learn these skills? What do we understand about specific learning disabilities and dyslexia? The first day of learning for teachers and parents is to understand the learning process in developing the skills for literacy. There will be a clear correlation in the difficulties faced for many students and what is required for literacy learning. The participants will learn to identify and understand the traits that would suggest a dyslexic learner. When we have a more definite profile of the learner, we can then use the appropriate strategies and methods to assist the dyslexic learner. The first stage is to know what you are looking for!

Now that we can identify the difficulties that the dyslexic learner faces, we can learn to use alternate methods and resources for assisting the learner, both in the classroom and at home. We will develop a plan to ensure that the learner works through a structured, multisensory and explicit approach to literacy teaching and learning.

What is good for dyslexic learners is also good for other students as well!
