Zoom webinar for parents on how to support their student with dyslexia at second level

Thursday 4th February 2021 at 19.00

Many parents of students with dyslexia struggle to know how to support the student at second level as the challenges are different to those experienced at primary level. The Covid crisis has exacerbated this as home schooling has returned. This webinar aims to give practical help and advice.

The topics addressed include:

  • How dyslexia affects the student at second level
  • How to support the student in the following areas
    • Organisation
    • Note-taking
    • Memory and Learning
    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Spelling and Vocabulary.
  • Key educational choices such as subject choice, language exemptions etc.
  • Resources such as useful websites.

This is the 8th time we have held the webinar since October 2020. What parents have said about the webinar.

  • ‘Gave me hope and ideas on how to help’.
  • ‘I found it brilliant, jam-packed with information and advice and it was performed in such a professional manner’.
  • Thank you very much!! Very informative and helpful. Lots of ideas going forward!
