KHS Dyslexia Hub
Kelso High School are launching a new group for dyslexic learners (including those who think they may be dyslexic). This will run on Mondays during P5. To keep the groups a manageable size, each week will focus on a different year group and will rotate over the month. A reminder will be added to the daily bulletin.
In the Dyslexia Hub we will look at all sorts of things including:
- using technologies, including iPads
- strategies to support dyslexia in everyday life – organisation, memory, concentration etc
- coping with stress, including exam stress
- study skills/homework
- understanding the neuro-diverse brain
Monday 7th December P5 (1.15 – 2.00) S1
Monday 14th December P5 (12.25 – 1.15) Senior Phase pupils
