Literacy for All in a World of Diversity

We will be running training over this coming session on Literacy for All in a World of Diversity, considering how to assess for change and progress in all pupils who are experiencing any level of difficulties in areas of literacy, and for gathering the evidence required to be able to make an identification of dyslexia where appropriate.   We will also look at the Three Wave model of Intervention and challenge and how to provide target learning for progress at each of the waves.

Each training will be delivered by an Educational Psychologist and the Literacy Development Officer.

All trainings should be booked through the CPD calendar.
