Even though 10 to 15 percent of students in our classroom have dyslexia, many teachers do not know how to identify or support students in the classroom. Elise will guide participants through the identification process and how it impacts reading and spelling. How do you approach teaching students who are ‘at risk’ or who have been identified? How do you ensure children experience success? Elise will address these questions and guide the discussion. She is passionate about using good evidence based practice for students with dyslexia. This workshop is suitable for classroom and specialist teachers as well as parents.

While working with children who needed additional support, Maureen Pollard realised there was a need for explicit and sequential phonemic and phonics teaching in Australian classrooms. When she helped teachers change their approach and pedagogy, the overall literacy results improved drastically and Learning Logic and Little Learners Love Literacy® was born.
Evidence-based literacy research stresses the importance of explicit and sequential literacy teaching from the beginning. Our goal is to have this happening in every Foundation classroom from Day 1, giving children the best possible chance of being fluent readers, writers and spellers.
It also makes it clear that the most effective way of teaching reading is to include 5 key components: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency practice, vocabulary and comprehension. Little Learners Love Literacy® has been developed to do this in a simple, sequential, explicit, effective and engaging way.
