What can I do?
1. As with any pupil with a learning disability,
you should be positive and supportive about their problems. This may mean that you meet up regularly to discuss their progression
2. Listen to their needs and try to do what you can
3. Talk with other staff about dyslexia to promote a greater awareness, to
encourage fair treatment and minimise discrimination.
4. Respect the fact that although they have
a learning difference, they should be treated equally to any other teacher.
Teacher will encounter different problems. These are some of the things that they may need in order to progress.
1. Access to a computer in order to type up reports
2. Access to an area where files can be stored
and a calendar/timetable can be displayed.
3. Documents to be printed on coloured paper,
(if they also suffer from Irlen Syndrome)
4. Large documents to be reduced to notes
or be made accessible through a PC.
5. An interactive whiteboard so that classroom
notes can be typed before the lesson.
6. Have someone available in the school to
proof read paperwork that will be going to parents.
