Description

Chantal Karatas is the Founder of Odyssey Assessment Education and Training. She lectures on the MA Dyslexia Research and Practice and on a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) (FE/HE) for trainee teachers. Since 2007, she has worked in both colleges and universities teaching Maths, English and Study Skills, as well as mentoring students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, Aspergers/Autism and mental health difficulties, across their degree programmes.

Chantal assesses for dyslexia and dyscalculia, across all ages of education, as well as for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and work based assessments. To develop inclusive practice across education and the workplace, Chantal regularly delivers training for parents, teachers, disability teams and managers in relation to; dyslexia, dyscalculia, visual disturbance, autism and ADHD. All training utilises experiential activities to develop a deeper understanding of theory and how this relates to practical strategies and reasonable adjustments at home, in the classroom or workplace.

1) The difference between a learning disability and a specific learning difference

2) Assessment pathways for dyslexia

3) The Medical and Social Models of disability

4) The Equality Act 2010 specifically in relation to reasonable adjustments

5) Positive role models with dyslexia

6) Strategies to support students with dyslexia, specifically in regard to phonological awareness, rapid naming, working memory and executive function.
