Who is speaking

Linda McKillop
Dyslexia is a term which over many years has meant different things to different people. The term is now back in use, but in a circumscribed way.

This practical, interactive presentation will give an overview of Dyslexia’s past – how it has been understood and misunderstood. It will also look at the present and into the future, showing how the clear science which is now known about Dyslexia places us in a better position to respond to it, and to other challenges which impact upon literacy, from evidence-based perspectives.

Participants will gain an understanding of what dyslexia is, how to identify students who may have Dyslexia, evidence-based instruction on teaching children with Dyslexia, and how to support these students in
the classroom.
