The SpLD Service


 

The SpLD Service aims at liaising with educators, parents, employers and the general in order to:


 
 
1.      promote awareness and understanding of dyslexia;
2.      empower the dyslexic learner to fulfil his potential; and
3.      ensure that educators can support the dyslexic individual as required in the mainstream class.
 
 
This is presently being done by the implementation of the following:
 

 

              • ​​visiting schools and providing consultation services;
        • working with educators to plan and make provision for an appropriate curriculum through differentiation of materials and a range of teaching strategies;
        • promoting a flexible educational environment, which addresses the diverse needs of the individual;
        • encouraging a dynamic partnership amongst external agencies, educators, parents and pupils and encourage a collaborative approach at all times;
        • cooperating with educators in such a way that pupils with barriers to learning maximise their advancement, whilst raising whole class standards to achieve the primary aims of the school;
        • fostering an understanding of additional support ​needs with educators including the Senior Management Team and other agencies;
        • facilitating the earliest practicable identification of literacy difficulties;
        • monitoring the effectiveness of teaching programs and special arrangements for examinations;
        • organising short structured courses for dyslexic students and their parents;
        • empowering the individual with dyslexia through an individualised programme;
        • encouraging diverse teaching strategies so that individuals grow in confidence and self-esteem;
        • ​recording, reporting and monitoring progress; and
        • ensuring that the society is supported with regularly updated information, resources and reading materials.
