Supporting adults with dyslexia in tertiary education and training: an introduction
Price$180 + GST (includes booking fees)
Get hands on exposure to the latest dyslexia screening tools; examine the additional challenges that learners face beyond phonological decoding and find out the latest thinking on Positive Dyslexia and some of the new technological aids.
Recent research findings from a wide range of disciplines have significantly expanded our understanding of dyslexia and how best to support dyslexic students and trainees. Breakthroughs in Neuroscience, Genetics, Cognitive Psychology and Education have cumulated to level the playing field for adults with dyslexia, and to provide pathways to dramatically improved success rates in tertiary education and training.
Attendees will come away from the workshop with ideas how to implement a holistic support programme to foster the best possible outcomes for dyslexic students and trainees.
Facilitated by Mike Styles. Mike Styles is the National Literacy and Numeracy Advisor for the Primary ITO.
