Feed Back from Dyslexia Friendly Schools Training in Ayr

Asking people to complete evaluation forms after training is not my favourite thing.  Here is the most original evaluation exercise I have ever seen, put together by Dr Kim Whitehead from South Ayrshire, organizer of the recent  Dyslexia conference.  While I hope some of the comments refer to me, it is important to acknowledge that a team of presenters delivered a range of workshops on the day and it is heartening to read the comments and see how well their efforts were received. There is an enormous commitment to Dyslexia Aware best practice in Scotland, arguably the strongest in the UK,  and it is being driven at national level.  South Ayrshire are on a Dyslexia Aware charge after a successful launch a few years ago with all sorts of plans for the future and I am very proud to have been part of the process.

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.
