Introducing the SPELD NSW Schools Essential Series Online.
A set of Professional Learning modules that focus on developing teacher discipline knowledge in literacy and numeracy. Bridging the gap between contemporary research and pedagogy and supporting teachers in adopting evidence-based instruction that leads to best outcomes for ALL students, including those with Specific Learning Disorders such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia.
Each series is themed and targeted at a specific area of learning; Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Specific Learning Difficulties. The workshops are carefully designed to provide robust and deep learning across each series, however each workshop can be taken as individual Professional Learning courses.
We have three new Essential Series workshops coming up.
