This website aims to assist newly qualified school teachers in their understanding of dyslexia and the ways to manage this 'diversity' in a school setting. It has been designed by the author as part of the Supportive Learning Environments course on the Graduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching (primary specialisation) at CQ University.
The website is designed around the focus questions:
- What is dyslexia?
- What causes dyslexia?
- What are the characteristics of dyslexia?
- Who has dyslexia?
- How do you treat dyslexia?
- What can I do to make my classroom dyslexia-friendly?
The main ideas from each of these questions are highlighted under Key Points.
