Webinar - 1 hour

Dyslexia for Mainstream Teachers at Second Level

 

This webinar is designed for mainstream teachers who have students with dyslexia in their classes.  Given that dyslexia can affect up to 1 in 10 people, most teachers will have such students in their classes.  The key emphasis is on practical classroom and school strategies as well as useful resources. 

 Although the course deals in particular with dyslexia, many of the strategies and resources will also help when working with students with other specific learning difficulties such as Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum.      

Topics

  • Dyslexia and how it affects students at second level
  • Screening and Identification
  • The Dyslexia Friendly school
  • Teaching strategies including specific ones for reading, writing, note-taking, memory and learning. 
  • Resources including subject specific resources for teachers.
