Most people think of dyslexia as seeing words or letters backwards, but the truth is, the issue comes from being able to manipulate language, rather than having issues viewing it. Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 people and impacts each person differently.
Individuals with dyslexia may spell words phonetically. For example, they may spell “stick”, ‘stik’.
Brains with dyslexia rely on the right side of the brain more than usual, this means when they read a word it takes a longer trip through their brain. This causes them to read with more difficulty
Everyone is different, and many people have lived happy, successful lives despite having dyslexia, such as Muhammad Ali and Picasso.
Those who struggle with dyslexia often find they have remarkable talents in other areas, such as in art or mathematics.
Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to tell your teacher, they will give you more patience and support you in your difficult moments.
BehaviourWatch is in use by SEN schools both nationally and internationally to efficiently record critical data to help institutions clearly identify patterns and answer vital questions, such as “Is pupil X’s behaviour a challenge every Monday? Does pupil X display negative behaviour during every period 4? When is pupil X showing positive behaviour? Is the library causing pupil X a challenge? Does pupil X have a challenge with a particular member of staff? What interventions are helping reduce negative behaviour? Is medication impacting behaviour?”.
Each system is custom built to match existing policies and processes to support SEN schools with all aspects of behaviour management and can include SEMH assessment, EHCPs and intervention tracking to improve outcomes.
