Our approach is distinctly innovative. We constantly seek new ways to increase awareness
Training of teachers on instructing and supporting children with dyslexia: 3 teachers from selected partner schools will participate in a 3-day training of trainers (TOT) on available referral services and support for children with dyslexia. The training will be on evidence-based reading instruction to minimize the impact of dyslexia.
Teachers will also be trained on early screening/identification of students at risk of long-term literacy problems, including dyslexia and strategies that support students with dyslexia including resilience development, use of non-print mediums, and policy framework around inclusive education.
They will also be given resources inform of training manuals for future reference. As a result of the training, teachers will support and oversee implementation of reading club activities. The teachers will be the point-of-contact for the project in their schools and will be responsible for the establishment of a network with external agencies where sensitive cases can be referred.
