This course will consider the academic barriers experienced by students with Specific Learning Difficulties. It will cover a range of teaching environments and increase your awareness of best practice in implementing support. Most importantly it will give practical advice about best practice to ensure an effective learning environment for all involved. The course will focus on dyslexia, dyspraxia and dysgraphia.

Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties: Identification and Diagnosis (Briefing) is a useful precursor to this workshop, as it will not cover diagnosis or identification of specific learning difficulties.

Tutoring: Support for New Appointees Wed 2 Oct 2019   09:00 Finished

Tutors provide general oversight of student welfare, in the widest sense, and form an essential part of College communities and the Colleges’ provision to students. This course will use a mixture of formal presentations, group work and plenary discussions to provide new or prospective Tutors with advice and support for their students, a greater understanding of responsibilities and where to find information. There will also be presentations from the Disability Resource Centre and the University Counselling Service relevant to College Tutoring.

Please note that the term ‘Tutor’ as used at Cambridge does not refer to a teaching role.

This course will review and explain the process of getting a diagnosis of a specific learning difficulty (SpLD) from the first observation of a difficulty to the point at which support is in place. It will focus on dyslexia the areas of difficulty experienced by students with such diagnoses and how proposed adjustments are helpful. Factors to consider when recommending a student for an assessment will also be discussed.

The course is a useful precursor to either Teaching Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (Briefing) or Specific Learning Difficulties: What Administrators Need to Know (Briefing).
