Tutor: Wyn Mc Cormack
While we are still taking bookings, unfortunately due to circumstances outside of our control the course has had to be POSTPONED. When a new time and date for the online webinar are set, we will email all registered participants. We thank you for your understanding on this matter.
This webinar is designed for mainstream teachers who have students with dyslexia in their classes. Given that dyslexia can affect up to 1 in 10 people, most teachers will have such students in their classes. The key emphasis is on practical classroom and school strategies as well as useful resources.
Although the course deals in particular with dyslexia, many of the strategies and resources will also help when working with students with other specific learning difficulties such as Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum.
