Practical Solutions for Dyslexia

On Thursday 11th February 2021 we hosted the fourth of our ‘Inviting the Experts…’ series of webinars. This is a series of CPD sessions which we have set up recognising the incredible work that is going on in schools right now in particularly challenging circumstances and the need for school staff to have access to informative, practical advice from experts.

The session was delivered by Gillian Ashley, Head of Training and Chief Development Officer from the British Dyslexia Association, who gave an expert introduction to dyslexia and the practical support that schools can provide. Here are some key items from the session:

What is dyslexia?

How common is dyslexia?

What are schools legally required to do?

How can schools help with reading?

How can schools help with writing?

How can schools help with spelling?

Using Assistive Technology
