Dyslexia: Myth or Monster?
Finding a path through the maze.
This workshop, led by senior lecturers from the Centre for Education and Research at the University of Northampton, will present an overview of our current understanding of dyslexia and what challenges may be experienced by learners with this learning difference. During the workshop participants will be asked to consider their own conceptualisation of dyslexia and develop some understanding of the terminology used in standardised assessment of dyslexia by specialist teachers and educational psychologists. There will be opportunities to discuss examples of definitions of dyslexia in current use and to look at how these are reflected in dyslexia screening and identification. The workshop will identify the important elements to consider when constructing and adapting teaching programmes for learners with dyslexia. We will explore multi-sensory teaching methods which aim to enhance a student’s ability to implement metacognitive strategies and support independent learning.

Going beyond the word.
Working with learners who struggle with literacy.
This workshop, led by senior lecturers from the Centre for Education and Research at the University of Northampton, will look holistically at the development of literacy (both reading and writing) and will examine both what can go wrong for students in the development of literacy skills and how we can address those issues. The workshop will begin by establishing an understanding of what typical reading and writing development looks like. We will go on to explore the principles which underlie how we design support for learners experiencing difficulties, particularly at the text level. Through a series of interactive activities, we will model evidence-based practical approaches which are effective in developing skills in reading comprehension and writing, such as Reciprocal Teaching, Paired Reading and Writing, and a variety of planning tools for writing.
