Online Sessions - Dyslexia for Mainstream Second-level Teachers

Online Sessions - Dyslexia for Mainstream Second-level Teachers

Dyslexia for Mainstream Second-level Teachers  

DATE:         2 x Online Sessions - Monday, 19th & Tuesday, 20th of October 2020
TIME:          4.30pm to 5.30pm
VENUE:      Zoom Meeting

These online sessions are suitable for Post Primary Teachers.

This course is designed for two groups of teachers.

  1. Teachers who have students with dyslexia in their classes.  Given that dyslexia can affect up to 1 in 10 people, most mainstream teachers will have such students in their classes.
  2. Teachers who have been allocated some SEN classes and have not received any formal training on SEN teaching.  Although the course deals in particular with dyslexia, many of the strategies and resources will also help when working with students with other specific learning difficulties such as Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum.


  • Dyslexia and how it affects students at second level
  • Screening, identification and understanding the assessment
  • Classroom teaching and learning strategies
  • Strategies/resources/classroom planning for the teacher with some SEN classes.
  • Study skills for the student with dyslexia

What teachers have said about the courses:

  •  ‘An engaging and comprehensive course.  One of the most relevant I have ever done’.
  • ‘Very interesting day that will change my approach in the classroom from Monday’.
  •  ‘I found this course absolutely brilliant.  I feel so much more confident in being to help my students achieve their goals’.
  • ‘Excellent course, I will be taking lots of ideas back to school’.
