Additional needs and literacy:

Catering for the needs of diverse Middle Years learners


This program will explore strategies to support primary and lower secondary students who have additional learning needs, with a focus on literacy. Partipants will gain an understanding of  common conditions that impact on children’s learning, and will consider the role of teachers, practical text-based teaching and learning strategies, along with digital technologies that can support learning.  

This program will involve over 16 hours, including seminars, webinars, readings and journal entries and classroom trialling of techniques, strategies and digital technologies. Please see the accompanying flyer for more information, linked at the bottom of this text, to download.
