Event description

Description

The aim of the course is to provide an opportunity to discuss a variety of approaches for use by Classroom Assistants and Literacy Support Personnel in class or in contexts of withdrawal.

The role of the CA will be described and discussed, both in the contexts of in-class support and in withdrawal.

The training will examine the difficulties encountered by some readers and writers and the processes involved in using language to read, comprehend and communicate with a range of audiences. Assessment strategies and intervention approaches will be shared.

Strategies, approaches and recommended materials or programmes will be differentiated to meet the needs of those working in primary or post-primary phases.
