Overview

People with low levels of literacy encounter grave difficulties in coping in a 'reading based' society. It is essential that at risk readers be promptly identified and that early intervention programmes be implemented. The expertise of the classroom teacher in the identification and remediation of children with reading difficulties is deemed to be a critical factor in the prevention of serious reading disabilities.

This course focuses on the teaching of children with specific learning difficulties in reading. The emphasis is on assessment and diagnosis of children with reading problems and on the structuring, implementation and analysis of appropriate intervention programmes. Note: Students will require access to a child with reading difficulties in English for completion of this course.
