Presenter: Sue Dymock
Status: Discussions completed

Dyslexia is sometimes used as a catch-all term for learners experiencing reading difficulties. Research shows, however, that there are a number of reasons why learners have reading difficulties and being dyslexic is just one.

This webinar will focus on two topics:

  1. What is dyslexia?
  2. Signs of dyslexia.
