Keynote - Dyslexia Scotland Perth

Article Category - Dyslexia
My keynote presentation identifies key classroom adjustments that have been introduced into schools in South Ayrshire through my training courses as part of the local Dyslexia Friendly Schools initiative. It also seeks to introduce a paradigm shift away from Dyslexia as a disability and towards viewing Dyslexia as a preferred way of learning – effectively acknowledging the right to be Dyslexic and our obligation to teach our students in the ways they prefer to learn. I will be modelling three classroom based strategies which are “Dyslexia Aware” and which have a positive impact on the learning of all individuals in a classroom. My slides for the presentation will be posted on the Dyslexia Scotland website and also on this site, technology permitting!
