What to do if your adult learners have dyslexia


dyslexia

This is another issue that comes up from time to time in our training. Effectively diagnosing and working with dyslexia falls outside of the narrow range of skills that we tend to focus on with our literacy and numeracy professional development and training with trades and vocational tutors.

However, it does come up in discussions with trades and vocational tutors. Here are seven short videos from the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults. Here’s the playlist:

  1. Defining dyslexia
  2. Diagnosing dyslexia
  3. Tailoring the instruction and dyslexia
  4. A strategic approach to dyslexia
  5. Coping with dyslexia
  6. Living with dyslexia
  7. Multiple perspectives and dyslexia

I’d appreciate any feedback if you find these useful or not. Let me know in the comments.
