Dyslexia Friendly Ways to Support Homework
This presentation is based on my book for parents “Taking the Hell out of Homework.” It presents the “tricks of the trade” I used as an SEN specialist when doing homework with my vulnerable daughter. The focus will be on how to support typical home learning and homework tasks like learning spellings, reading with your child, learning for tests and getting ideas down on paper.
This will be a very practical and hands on session suitable for both parents and teachers. When they register, participants will be given a short list of items to have to hand at the meeting e.g. highlighters, plastic or Scrabble letters.
