Support with reading and spelling

Dyslexia Support Anke.Burdett@dslondon.org.uk


There is a growing need for support with reading and spelling in view of the increasing number of bilingual and multilingual pupils at the DSL. The opportunities for support have increased steadily over the last few years. I ensure that pupils in Years 1 to 6 receive individual support with reading and spelling during extra lessons. I am also responsible for supporting pupils with dyslexia throughout the school, offering advice and information to pupils, teachers and parents. 

In addition, I develop individual exercises (1:1 support) and prepare pupils’ support plans, which the teachers implement during lessons. Pupils also receive sup- port material prepared specifically for them, so that they can work on their individual areas.

Consultations:
Monday, period 2 or by appointment, consultations by individual arrangement
