It is thought that as many as 10% of us have Dyslexia.
So we are highly likely to encounter students who require us to be aware and able to support them appropriately. As educators we should never underestimate the importance of expanding our own knowledge. We need to improve our teaching techniques to match the learning style and needs of our students.
Improve your knowledge and teaching techniques at Sarah’s next workshop on Monday 16th January from 12.30pm-1.30pm at our office.
Feedback from her last workshop includes:
“Thanks, Sarah; that was a great workshop. It taught us about what Dyslexia is, what its effects on people’s learning are, and what we can do to help as tutors. And a good list of resources to draw on too – a really useful session”. Sarah, Science tutor
“I think your workshops will help tutors spot the tell-tale signs of dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. It will also improve the learning environment for students and teachers. It was good to discuss different teaching styles and I liked your ideas of using a decision/story dice and all the books you suggested. I will try and get hold of “Toe by Toe”. Laura, EAL tutor
“Understanding the ‘politics’ – identity and otherwise, that surround dyslexia seems to me to be useful in helping us as teachers talk more freely about it with a student, and you touched on some of those issues really helpfully. I was primarily interested in resources to help the upper school age groups as they approach those hefty and daunting large pieces of written work. So thanks so much for all of those resources.” Nathalie, English tutor
