Dyslexia: a Guide for Tutors (35’02”)

‘Dyslexia: a guide for tutors’ was originally developed in 2013 in the context of the UK. It’s a relatively long online lecture but it has some fairly simple message. Dyslexia is not a disease or a mental illness, it is a different way of seeing the world. This presentation invites colleagues to think about dyslexia, and its associated concerns, in the light of ‘multiple intelligences’ and look for the opportunity to meet the needs of dyslexic students by enhancing the way they do everything to support all learners. I am not a dyslexia expert, this presentation has no diagnostic function. It is simply one practitioner’s view of good practice in being inclusive.

These resources from 2013-2017 are being shared to support colleagues new to teaching online in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
