Workshop #1 - Identification and Understanding Difficulties Associated with the Diagnosis - Tuesday 9th March 2021, 7 - 8.30p.m.

Participants will look at the specific difficulties associated with the diagnosis and will use basic assessments and checklists suitable for classroom and school use to help teachers plan to assess students. At the end of this workshop, participants will understand better what Dyslexia feels like from the perspective of the person with Dyslexia, and in what areas of education and daily living the difficulties appear.

During this workshop, participants will examine differentiation techniques and resources that will help students with Dyslexia to access the curriculum and to reach their full potential.
