• What we currently understand about learning difficulties and Dyslexia

Often when a learner struggles with reading and spelling, the teacher aide is the one who provides a large amount of support. Providing the appropriate strategies and shared language to support the learner can create a more productive and successful environment. 

Providing Literacy support for the learner who is struggling, can be confusing and overwhelming if there is not a clear, consistent and structured approach to literacy. At this workshop, some simple and effective strategies can be learned and implemented to assist all learners when approaching reading and writing tasks.

Townsville Learnersaurus Workshops

Townsville Learnersaurus Workshops

Learnersaurus will be visiting Townsville for the first Learning Challenges Expo. Leslie Keast-Patch will be presenting a 3 hour workshop for teachers and parents.

The cost is $68.25 per person, book your seat now!

UNDERSTANDING DYSLEXIA

Once there is a clear understanding of what dyslexia is, those working with the dyslexic learner can identify the traits and provide more appropriate support. When we have a more definite profile of the learner, we can then use the appropriate strategies and methods to assist the dyslexic learner. The first stage is to know what you are looking for! In this session we will gain knowledge in the history and understanding of what dyslexia is, profile the dyslexic learner,  and learn to use alternative methods and resources for assisting the learner both in the classroom and at home.

What's good for dyslexic learners is also good for other students as well!
