Workshop 1: Identification and Understanding Difficulties associated with the Diagnosis (P/PP)
Tuesday 9th March at 7pm.
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.
Workshop 2: Helping Students to Access the Curriculum (P/PP)
Thursday 18th March at 7pm.
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. We will take a practical approach to planning to meet needs of the students and will look at some of the resources available for students with dyslexia.
