Specific Learning Differences – what are they and how can they be identified

Colleagues are invited to attend the Learning & Teaching Network session on Wednesday 6 March, from 13.15-14.30 in the UELT Seminar Room, Canterbury.

‘Specific Learning Differences- what are they and how can they be identified’ will be presented Veronica Millum, Specific Learning Difficulties Team Manager, Student Support and Wellbeing.

If you have ever wondered what the difference is between a student with an assessment for dyslexia and a student with an assessment for dyspraxia, this is for you.

The presentation will look at how we determine if a student needs to be referred for an assessment, what the assessor considers when identifying a SpLD; the differences between the main SpLD’s and how different aspects of learning difference result in the various identifiers. It will also consider how these difficulties impact on the individual student’s experience in lectures and seminars.

It will also consider some of the strategies that can be integrated into teaching to make it more inclusive for all students.
