Dyslexia and co-occurring neurodivergent ‘conditions’ – more bad days than good days at the moment?

Dyslexia and co-occurring neurodivergent ‘conditions’ – more bad days than good days at the moment?

Due to the various changes to our day to day lives and potentially a significant change to usual routine dyslexic/neurodivergent individuals may be finding things especially challenging at the moment. Whilst it’s widely accepted that even when life is ‘normal’ these individuals will have good days and bad days it is likely the current situation will see them experiencing more bad days than good. 

Our ‘new reality’ comes with challenges none of us ever expected to have to deal with…for some it will be day to day logistic challenges related to shopping for food, working from home and home-schooling, all of which mean considerable ‘change’ outside of our normal routines.  Yet these seem more like ‘inconveniences’ when compared to the challenges and sadly, the sacrifices, being faced by those people working on the frontline saving lives – and those who are also potentially ‘at risk’ in their provision of vital support to the NHS. However, the changes we’ve experienced and the various worries which accompany this may be having a greater impact on those with dyslexia and other neurodivergent ‘conditions’ regardless of what work they may be doing.

Employers who understand the importance of staff wellbeing and the need to take steps to prevent longer term problems with mental health will realise now is the time to ensure they are proactive and neuro-inclusive.    

 

Who is the webinar for?

Individuals, line managers, HR…those who want to understand how and why dyslexic/neurodivergent employees may be finding the current situation especially challenging.

Jannett Morgan

Neurodiversity in the Workplace: A colour brave conversation Research has shown that if you are neurodivergent, being a member of a minority ethnicity group increases the difficulties you experience. For this webinar we address the elephant in the room and explore the impact at work when discrimination on the grounds of “disability” meets discrimination on the grounds of “race”. You are invited to contribute to a colour brave conversation to identify ways to make the workplace more inclusive.

What goes on during Dyslexia coaching for adults in work?

What actually happens?

This webinar will show you –

  • what to expect from coaching sessions for adults with Dyslexia in work;
  • what kind of questions are asked during the sessions;
  • what strategies and resources can help to manage the issues that commonly arise;
  • how to achieve positive outcomes.

Everyone is different.

Workplaces and roles differ enormously.

Therefore, an approach that tackles all the issues around Dyslexia is essential if it is to support performance improvement in work.

This style of coaching focuses on building self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem for adults with Dyslexia, based on a well-respected theoretical approach.

Can understanding morphology help literacy development in dyslexic readers?

Professor Julia Carroll

Click HERE to read the full description.

We know that most children with dyslexia show particular difficulties with phonology. This project investigates how much children use morphology to compensate for these difficulties. Knowledge of a word’s morphemes can help us to read and write unusual words such as ‘health’ (which contains ‘heal’). It can also act as a powerful vocabulary-learning tool. If children with dyslexia are aware of this information, they could use it to help improve their spelling and reading. I examine morphological awareness and use of morphological strategies in literacy in children with dyslexia, asking to what extent children with dyslexia use these strategies. I argue that students with literacy difficulties are sensitive to morphological information, but may have difficulties representing it in a structured way. If this is the case, then a highly structured approach to teaching morphological skills may be most effective for these students.
