This 3-part series aims to give you a research-based understanding of how literacy develops, why some learners struggle and how we can prevent them from falling through the gaps.
Outcome: You will understand the research behind literacy development, the stages learners go through and what processing/perceptual skills are needed for each stage.
Outcome: You will develop a greater understanding of ‘why’ some children are failing, and greater confidence in your ability to cater for their needs.
Outcome: You will gain confidence with research-based methodology and learn how to put in place a school-wide programme to improve literacy outcomes – for all learners.
