Information for Parents

We had a Parent Workshop for Dyslexia in April 2016.

Teresa Weir, our dyslexia specialist explained what dyslexia is.

There was an opportunity for parents to look at different multi-sensory activities we use to support pupils, and to get ideas to support their child at home.

Dyslexia Definition

(Sir Jim Rose- ‘Identification and Teaching Young People with Dyslexia and Literacy Difficulties 2009)  

Definition of Dyslexia

  • Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling
  • Characteristic features of dyslexia are phonological awareness, verbal memory and processing speed
  • Dyslexia occurs across a range of intellectual abilities
  • It is best thought of as a continuum, not a distinct category, and there are no cut-off points
  • Co-occurring difficulties may be seen in aspects of language, motor co-ordination, concentration and personal organisation, but these are not, by themselves, markers of dyslexia.             

The British Dyslexia Association has lots of support and information for parents of dyslexic children
