This first session of our Summer School series will explore what Multisensory Teaching is and why is it so important? This session will explore why this style of teaching is so useful for all learners. It will also explore the range of difficulties that learners with dyslexia can experience and how to support them best both at home and in the classroom.
This second session of our Summer School series will present hints and tips on supporting all children in developing study skills and effective independent learning techniques before their return to school. This session will give insights into how best to teach students how to study; including those with neurodiverse differences.
This final session of our Summer School series will look at how best to prepare pupils for a return to learning after a long period of absence. We welcome both parents and teachers to this broadcast, as for many the start of term in September will be more stressful than ever, emotional health needs to be at the heart of a return to school strategy.
