COURSE OBJECTIVES

Hence the participants will be equipped to work with more able or older learners who need higher order skills or have additional difficulties that can impact on their learning besides literacy issues.

 

Note: Teaching experience and/or knowledge of the Essential Literacy Approach or Orton-Gillingham teaching principles will be useful.
