Audience: This course is designed for upper primary and secondary teachers
Many dyslexic students feel defined by what they cannot do. Every day they have to do things they find hard but others seem to find easy. This course aims to show upper primary and secondary teachers what they can do to help dyslexic students to experience and acknowledge success. It examines the indicators and impact of dyslexia and what Dyslexia Friendly Schools can do to minimise the impact. Participants will explore a range of support strategies, including the use of assistive technology. They will also learn about new research that shows that resilience is a greater predictor of dyslexic success than gains in academic skills. A resilience program designed for dyslexic students will be outlined.
