Topics to be covered
· How dyslexia affects the student at second level
· The principles underlying the strategies that help the students
· Classroom planning/resources/strategies for the teacher with some SEN classes. In particular a plan for the year’s classwork for a SEN group is outlined.
· Study skills for the student with dyslexia
