About the Course

The 15-hour certificate course will expose participants to the current research on dyslexia and Chinese language, as well as pedagogical approaches to support children with language learning difficulties. Through building awareness of the nature and structure of language, participants will gain a better understanding of the difficulties dyslexic children face when learning the Chinese language, especially as a second language. Participants will also be introduced to strategies that can actively engage children in building literacy skills such as orthographic and morphological awareness, stroke formation and patterns, oracy skills, comprehension and writing. Some other helpful resources will also be shared in this course.

本课程将介绍目前关于读写障碍与学习华语的研究,以及辅助学习困难孩童的教学方法。参与者将会对语言的性质和结构有更好的认识,也更了解读写障碍孩童在学习汉语时所面临的困难。本课程将会介绍一些实用有效的教学策略,如识字法和语素意识、口语技巧、基本理解和写作。 同时也将与参与者分享教学资源。

 

Note: The course will be conducted in both English and Mandarin, in order to explain certain concepts.
