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!

Client Feedback

I shared the ideas and methods that I learned in the course with my colleagues in a sharing session after the final examination in the 2015-2016 school year. I recommended colleagues to attend this course as this is the most stimulating and inspiring course that I, as a teacher with more than 20 years of experience, have ever attended. Not only is the course presenting theories, it also introduces a lot of practical teaching ideas, teaching aids and resources such as websites to colleagues. I will suggest the principal to allocate funds and human resources to build up teaching materials and aids such as vocabulary writing cards with sound boxes, alphabet arcs and clothes line and pegs for sentence building, etc.
