About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

Engaging with the curriculum can be difficult when experiencing challenges with literacy and numeracy skills. For students with Dyslexia this can't simply be addressed by doing more work. This session will look at identifying what Dyslexia is and explore strategies to ensure that students are supported so that they can engage with the curriculum and complete work that is achievable.

By the end of this session you will have gained an understanding of defining dyslexia and strategies to support students.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of
the session.
