1 Day Teacher Course
This course is an introduction to the area of Specific Learning Deficits.
Topics covered include a definition of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dysorthography etc and also encompasses areas such as identification and practical classroom ideas.
The Directors are aware that lack of information has been a barrier to teachers understanding Dyslexia and our courses will help address this issue.
3 Day Intensive Teacher Course
- DAY ONE: What is Dyslexia; Understanding the assessment.
- DAY TWO: Identifying characteristics, analysing main processing deficits.
- DAY THREE: Ways to support children with Specific Learning Difficulties in the classrooms
Due to the dearth of information on Dyslexia in teacher training, a number of teachers have contacted Assist Dyslexia for information and advice.
This course will contain practical exercises that enable teachers to experience how Dyslexics feel and samples of writing will be used to demonstrate the different types of Specific Learning Deficits and by the end of the course, teachers will be able to identify children with difficulties and they will have the necessary skills to aid them in the classroom.
