The opening keynote address by Kate Griggs from Made by Dyslexia will set the scene for the festival and our theme of Redefining inclusion, Redesigning learning. Kate will help us rethink our approach to learning differences in our day-to-day lives.
Learn from BATA council members Antony and Louise how the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) can help students with additional learning needs to achieve in higher education. Antony will highlight the benefits of the DSA for the end users. As he deep dives into practical examples for different learning needs. He’ll be followed by Louise, who is also a DSA Needs Assessor, to explore the needs assessment process, step by step.
We are joined once again by our panel of leading industry experts, for Part 2 of our #SENFutures webinar. Host Patrick McGrath will be catching up with the panel 16 months after we last spoke in the middle of the first UK lockdown.
During this live session, the panel will be discussing what the future now looks like for supporting students with additional learning needs. They'll also be delving into what advice is at industry level to support SEN learners in this changing climate. Alongside helping you understand the role technology plays in supporting SEN students going forward.
In this session, Donna from the BDA will help attendees understand what dyslexia is and the ways they can deliver a dyslexia friendly way of teaching.
She’ll do this by helping to shift perception and focus to the positive attributes or “superpowers” that students with dyslexia have. As well as highlighting why early identification of Dyslexia is key to being able to educate the students themselves as to what they need on their learning journey.
