Dyslexia

Develop advanced knowledge and skills to support students with Dyslexia throughout their education.

The suites of short courses serve as Professional Development opportunities for teachers across Australia. They also provide tasters and pathways into Torrens Education courses and to serve the wider community in areas of need.

Viewed across a spectrum, dyslexia can be difficult to recognise. By expanding on the understanding of dyslexia traits and range of support tools, this subject uncovers the complexity of dyslexia and how to recognise and support individuals. Students will be presented with perspectives from the lived experience of individuals and parents demonstrating varying contexts and levels of support requirements. Understanding how this condition can impact an individual’s education creates the platform for students to apply their knowledge to put contemporary practices of support in the classroom.

This is a core subject in our Graduate Certificate of Education (Learning Differences) and (Special Education). It would be offered as a standalone subject without any alterations and in line with regular offerings of this subject. Students passing all assessments in this subject would be awarded a Torrens Certificate of Achievement that could be utilized for credit in appropriate Torrens Education courses.
