Literacy Development Seminar


St Thomas' Auditorium,
101 High Street,

Course Content

This seminar is suitable for anyone who is interested in how literacy develops and why some learners fall through the gaps. It is particularly relevant to teachers/parents of dyslexic learners or those who are interested in strategies which are particularly effective with boys who are struggling with literacy.

The presentation covers the development of phonological awareness, visual perception and memory skills and how strategies change as learners move through the key stages of literacy. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions.

The seminar will also present and explain the findings of a recent research programme in conjunction with Auckland University. This covers the importance of the Visual Speed Recognition Test on StepsWeb. The Visual Speed Recognition Test is a world first and is relevant for identifying learners who are likely to struggle with fluency and comprehension. We will be presenting the results of the research, the neurological implications and why it’s relevant for teachers and parents.

Registrations should be made with Carol Duffy by 21st June 2018.
