Specific learning difficulties: their impact in HE (15th May)

This GRADskills workshop is open to all teaching staff, and will primarily focus on dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia/DCD, dyscalculia and ADHD, beginning with an outline of the typical characteristics associated with each condition to help you understand and recognise the presenting features. You will be given information on sources of support in the University, including guidance on the referral process. The workshop will also cover practical exercises on support strategies that you can draw on in your day-today work with students who have or might have a SpLD.
