I have several courses on supporting SEN pupils’ reading coming up, and creating the handouts has made me realise what a lot of useful articles and websites about learning difficulties I’ve come across in the last few months.
This is a great collection of resources focusing on autism awareness.
I’ve discovered a number of valuable dyslexia resources recently:
- These are some useful case studies (including video clips) on effective interventions for literacy for students with dyslexia.
- TES’s dyslexia friendly classroom resources are very helpful.
- Bev Humphrey has written two useful blogs about helpful apps for dyslexic students.
- Load2Learn is a new online resource developed by Dyslexia Action and RNIB to help dyslexic and blind or partially sighted school students. Curriculum materials can be downloaded in a range of formats, then adapted to suit individual needs.
- I blogged a little while ago about two excellent television programmes about dyslexia.
- Finally, in case you’ve missed it, this clip from the i-book edition of Maggot Moon is a graphic illustration of dyslexia.
