Presenter:
Anastasia Metallinou, EFL teacher and SpLDs specialist, co-author of English Sounds Fun

Dyslexic learners face many challenges, usually made worse by a lack of self-confidence. In this session I demonstrate some simple strategies for building the self-esteem that dyslexic students need to succeed in learning, and in life.

“The wonderful thing about tiggers”: AD(H)D and other co-occurring Specific Learning Differences.

Teachers are becoming better at recognising dyslexia in their
students, but it usually appears with other SpLDs which may not be
identified. This workshop offers an overview of a range of SpLDs that
frequently co-occur, including dyspraxia and Asperger’s Syndrome,
before focussing on AD(H)D. Participants will learn more about how to
identify AD(H)D, how it can affect language learning and how to
accommodate it in the language classroom.

Presenter: Dr Anne Margaret Smith

Price: 30 euros
