Working with Dyspraxic Students at Secondary School

This course will enable you to help your dypraxic student to take more control of their learning.

Introduction

Dyspraxia makes organisational skills difficult and an awareness of time challenging, study skills adapted to the needs of the dyspraxia learner can aid the student to take more effective control of their learning

Course Description

This course is delivered by a dyspraxic person - Louise Green, who has years of experience of supporting and adapting study skills to dyspraxic students. She has developed strategies that specifically target the organisational skills and difficulties that the learners face in terms of their awareness of time.  She will demonstrate that evidence-based intervention strategies can be effective in enabling the student to cope with the demands of the curriculum.

Study skills have been demonstrated as the most cost effective and successful way to enable students to take effective command of their learning and lead to academically success. Study skills have been defined as effective learning competencies associated with absorbing information in the form of acquiring information; organising that information to take control of the content; synthesising and remembering that information; and applying that information when being tested.
