Date: October          RSVP: Enrolments close 26 September
Location: Statewide

Intended Audience: This program is designed for school leaders, primary and secondary teachers and Special Needs Coordinators.

A solution focused approach, using evidence validated techniques to raise the achievement of the 20 plus per cent of students who do not have a label of Dyslexia but who will have clear Dyslexic Type Learning Needs. DTLN.

These students are typically unsupported in the classroom and rely on the ability of their teacher to notice and adjust – to notice the thinking gap between ideas expressed orally and adjust tasks, methods and approaches to ensure that evidence of ability appropriate achievement can be secured, despite current weaknesses in basic literacy skills
