Talk on study skills for dyslexic children

A talk on developing study skills for older children and teens with dyslexia will be given at Kildare Community Library on Thursday next, writes Brian Byrne.

Beginning at 7pm, it will be given by occupational therapist Dr Dorothy Armstrong and is aimed at parents, students with dyslexia, teachers and those who work with this group.

This talk will help students learn how to prepare for exams and will cover issues such as understanding how dyslexia can impact studying, preparing to study, using your own learning style, how to read to understand, how to take notes, and memory strategies.

It is one of a series of talks and workshops organised by Kildare Library Service. Attendance is free, but should be booked by contacting the relevant library in advance.

Dr Armstrong has a wide range of expertise in working with children, teenagers and young adults.

Attendance at all of the events is free of charge and open to everyone but advance booking is required. Please contact the library where the talk is happening to book your place.

A brochure outlining the full programme of talks and workshops for 2017 is available from your local library. For further information please check out
