Dyslexia: from assessment to intervention
Last week, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend ACAMH‘s conference Dyslexia: from assessment to intervention, one of many events to mark Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017.
Professor Maggie Snowling talked about how research is confirming the links between language and literacy development and the heritability of learning differences. (Read her thoughts on developmental language disorder (DLD) and Dyslexia)
Continuing the Dyslexia Debate, Professor Julian Elliott said that all learners struggling with literacy acquisition must be given appropriate and timely support.
Dr Gavin Reid shared practical advice and support recommendations across the curriculum to help develop the skills and confidence for children to become successful learners.
All of the speakers agreed that early identification and support of learning differences is the key to unlocking education.
