The Dyslexic in the Classroom
The course addresses the problems that pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties encounter throughout the curriculum. Teachers are made aware of the special needs of these pupils, and they are encouraged to rethink the vocabulary that they use, replacing such commands as "Learn this" or "Read over carefully" with practical exercises designed to teach academic skills. Special attention is given to addressing ability differentiation, and to ensuring that the work done in Special Needs departments relates directly to class requirements. Other topics covered include motivation, confidence boosting, marking and homework. Participants are encouraged to offer specific difficulties encountered in the classroom, with a view to discovering practical solutions.
