Workshop Overview

Students with specific learning disorders (including dyslexia) typically struggle to make progress in the regular classroom environment. They require structured, sequential programs with far more opportunity for revision and practise than does the student who has little difficulty acquiring literacy and numeracy. This is best provided in an individual or small group situation.

This course will prove useful for any teacher, psychologist or speech pathologist who works with students with literacy difficulties.

This three-day course will cover:

  • The causes and defining features of specific learning disorders (dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia)

  • Phonological and orthographic processing

  • Oral language and vocabulary development

  • Selecting appropriate literacy and numeracy assessment tools

  • Understanding and using a psychologist’s report – a case study

  • The components of high-quality literacy instruction/intervention, including an overview of a structured, synthetic phonics program

  • Targeted remediation and accommodation strategies

  • Assistive technology
