Processing Skills for Dealing with Dyslexia/SpLD beyond Spelling and Reading
Most dyslexic/ SpLD students don't subliminally learn higher-order processing skills. For example, in producing an essay, they carry out research, construct a theme and write the essay. They are using various higher-order processing skills, but they don't learn the skills so that writing the next essay builds on what they have done. There are many useful processing skills that have to be taught in their own right.
This workshop will include activities using these processing skills so that participants can see how they work. We will discuss why it is necessary to teach these skills deliberately to dyslexic/ SpLD individuals. We will share ideas about using these skills in the situations in which the participants teach.
