Dyslexia Awareness Week 2020

During the week beginning 2nd November Invergordon Academy took part in a week of raising awareness of dyslexia and how to support people who have it.

As part of Dyslexia Awareness Week we completed the following activities:

  • Dyslexia Awareness lessons in PSE/Skills classes from S1-6
  • Presentations on the TV screens in the corridors
  • Posters / displays around the school
  • Feeds on social Media
  • Daily teacher “info bites” sent via e-mail during Dyslexia Awareness Week
  • Pupil and Teacher surveys before and after raising awareness

The aim was that pupils, staff and parents will:

  • have a better understanding of the difficulties faced by people with Dyslexia
  • have increased knowledge of the strengths people with Dyslexia have and the advantages over others
  • be more aware of the strategies and resources (ICT) they could use to improve their learning and study/revision.

It was also hoped that staff will be more aware of the pupils who have Dyslexia / specific literacy difficulties and parents will know who is providing specific support to their young person from the Support for Learning department.

The results of the week showed it was a great success again this year:
