Event Details

SEN and Disabilities Seminar Series 2016/17

Supporting Students with Dyslexia

Samantha McFarlane and Joanna Parkes, Learning Support Team, Inclusive Education Service, Nottingham City

“Dyslexia is identified as a disability as defined in the Equality Act 2010. Many of the dyslexic people across the UK, whether adults or children, are unable to fulfil their potential as a large percentage of the population still do not understand what dyslexia is, the difficulties which the condition presents and do not know how best to support them. Dyslexia is not an obvious difficulty; it is hidden. As a result, dyslexic people have to overcome numerous barriers to make a full contribution to society” (British Dyslexia Association). This seminar will explain what dyslexia is; what the barriers to learning are and what we can do to overcome them. We will help you empathise with dyslexic learners. Many of the strategies we will share with you will be of value for all learners. You will leave the seminar keen to try out the ideas.
