Dyslexia is estimated to affect 20% of the population, 4-6% severely. It is not gender specific and is often mistaken as a condition affecting a person’s academic ability. What does this mean for us? Generally in each class of 30 we would expect to see 5-6 pupils with dyslexia. Most classes with have 1 or 2 children who struggle and may have a diagnosis leaving a further 3-4 students with difficulties that remain undiagnosed. This kit in a bag supports children and young people who have dyslexia diagnosed or undiagnosed in the classroom.
Many children find it hard to keep up with others, struggle with self esteem and confidence and may find it hard to talk about their difficulties. Support individuals to understand their condition, know how to ask for help and identify the best ways to assist taking a person centred approach.
Within this set there are resources to:
- help young people talk about their difficulties and what helps
- to support self organisation
- to help raise self esteem and confidence
- to help a child let you know if they are worried or upset
- help give the child a voice and tell you what they may need
The kit comes with a booklet including photocopy resources. It is full of really useful information, instructions and ideas with free printable resources to use time and time again
The conversation starter cards ‘Dealing with Dyslexia at School’ look at 4 different areas
‘Identification’, ‘Opinions’, ‘Being Creative’ and ‘Solutions’. They are designed to stimulate conversation with a young person to find out more about them and identify how best you can help.
