Free online seminar on Dyslexia

May 21, 2020

Dyslexia Béarla 1

Gaeloideachas is delighted to announce their new series of free online events, which will begin in June. The first two webinars will take place on the 3rd and 4th of June at 19.00 and will discuss dyslexia in Irish-medium and Gaeltacht schools. Please note that the content of both webinars will be the same, with the webinar on the 3rd being bilingual (mostly in English) and the webinar on the 4th will be in Irish only with some speakers from Gaeltacht schools. On both nights, a panel of parents, teachers and researchers will share their advice, research and experience in this area.

Do you have questions on dyslexia in general or the suitability of the Irish-medium or Gaeltacht system for your child with dyslexia?

Would you like to learn about the experience of other parents or hear about some of the strategies you can use to help your child at home?

Dr Sinéad Nic Aindriú will share the latest research in this area and discuss the suitability of Irish-medium education for pupils with dyslexia. She will also discuss possible benefits of the system for your child.

Professor Pádraig Ó Duibhir will launch a new leaflet on dyslexia developed by Gaeloideachas in collaboration with the Dyslexia Association of Ireland.

Join us on Zoom on the 3rd or 4th of June at 19.00. You must register in advance of attending through the online form below. We would also love to hear any questions you have for the panel also. These can be submitted below.
