This session provides an introduction to dyslexia. It explains why children with dyslexia can find reading, spelling and writing so challenging and describes strategies that can be used to help children improve in these areas.

Growth Mindset

With Dr Dawn Starley, Educational Psychologist

Wednesday, 25th March 2020

Starting at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm

The beliefs children have about intelligence, effort, and struggle impact the choices they make about learning.  Children with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is fixed at birth and doesn’t change with practice.  They see school as a place where abilities are evaluated and they interpret mistakes are a sign that they lack talent.

This session will help you help your child/ren to develop a growth mindset believing that intelligence can be developed. These students see school as a place to develop their abilities and think of challenges as opportunities to grow.
