Supporting Students with dyslexia at 2nd level

Following on from a very successful webinar in early October, Wyn McCormack will host another Zoom webinar for parents on how to support their student with dyslexia at second level.

Date: Wednesday 11th November   19.00 – 20.00

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 and the present Covid crisis has exacerbated this.    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.  

What parents have said of our courses in the past. 

  • ‘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’.
  • ‘Very informative.  We felt we saw some possible direction and hope for our child into the future’.
