Dyslexia Demystified – Spot it, Teach it, Embrace it (On Demand)
A Literacy Lens with parent, teacher, ex principal and now expert consultant Carla McNeil of Learning Matters Ltd.
This webinar is an opportunity for school leaders, sencos and teachers to come together to learn about and or review quality practices and systems in relation to students with dyslexia or suspected dyslexia. We will explore the key indicators for dyslexia, what classroom teachers should be on the lookout for, suitable classroom and intervention(literacy) assessment tools and practical strategies or building reading fluency.
Based on current science and research this webinar is a cost and time effective way for you to ensure your schoolwide or classroom practice is ultimately where it needs to be to make a difference for all.
What you'll learn
- Relevant information to review their classroom and schoolwide systems in relation to detecting dyslexia as well as teaching those to read and write with dyslexia.
- Teachers will leave feeling like they have increased knowledge, systems in the making, a list of potential work-ons and ultimately empowered by the fact that they can make the biggest difference in the life of these students and their families.
- Teachers and schools will walk away with a checklist of areas to consider in their practice and leadership.
