VENUE: Zoom Webinar
This Webinar is suitable for Teachers, SNAs, Parents and Pupils.
This Webinar provides practical tips on how to build resilience, useful tips on technology and software, resources and advice on how to successfully navigate through life being dyslexic. I will endeavor to make this webinar practical with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get involved. Teachers, Parents and Pupils will leave the webinar with practical resources to help them in life and in the classroom. I am dyslexic myself and I have learned many useful hints and tips during my journey through school and college up to my Msc that are definitely worth passing on.
Bio of Presenter: Julie McInerney
I have been a Physical Education Teacher in a primary school in County Wicklow for the last 12 years. My main passion and drive to become a teacher stems from my own dyslexic struggles in school. Although the path I took wasn’t conventional, my main drive to become a teacher was to work with pupils with dyslexia and here I am! After completing my masters in DCU in Specific Learning Disabilities (Dyslexia) in 2019, I have implemented reading strategies into my school and work with many pupils on a one to one basis to assist in their personal journey through school. I feel my life experience has massively benefited my teaching as well as my extensive knowledge of all things dyslexia learned from my masters. I am a member of the DAI (Dyslexic Association of Ireland ) and DySI (Dyslexia Specialists Ireland) which comprises of a group of over 20 practising and experienced primary, secondary and further education teachers with a Masters in Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia) from Dublin City University (DCU). We also hold an Assessment Practising Certificate (APC) for the assessment of specific learning difficulties/dyslexia from the British Dyslexia Association.
