This was discussed in the year 10 and 11 Assembly today and will be shared with the children in years 7 to 9 on Monday. The children heard from a teacher and IB student who shared their experience with Dyslexia and their journey with this learning difference.
With 1 in every 5 students potentially possessing this learning difference, we need to become much more aware of the strengths and challenges these students have so that we can maximise their potential and enhance their learning experiences.
As we get better at identifying students who may be Dyslexic, intervention can be put in place earlier than ever before.
There will be a special meeting for all parents interested in finding out more about Dyslexia:
Date: Thursday 10th October
Venue: Main Canteen,Limanowskiego Campus.
This will be led by our School Psychologist Ms Iza Banasikowska so please come along if you would like to find out more about how 20% of our population may experience learning to read and write!
Click this link which leads to a course on Dyslexia designed for teachers and parents of children with this learning difference. It has been put together by Microsoft and Made By Dyslexia and is about an hour long with a number of interesting videos. If you are dyslexic or have a child who is or maybe dyslexic, I strongly encourage to do this course.
