Frewen College


Frewen College was asked by the British Dyslexia Association and Patoss (The professional association of teachers of students with specific learning difficulties) to take part in a series of information films showing best dyslexia teaching practise. The films will be used to help train other teachers from different schools.

The six films show some of the various techniques and approaches our teachers use to help dyslexic children learn effectively and make progress. Each one focuses on a different aspect of teaching and learning

Using questions to check understanding

A film showing how Frewen teachers strategically ask questions throughout lessons to ensure dyslexic students fully understand a concept

Making links to previous learning

A film showing how important it is for teachers to help dyslexic children connect their work from lesson to lesson and across subjects.

Outlining the lesson

This film illustrates how Frewen teachers summarize a lesson at the start to help set students' expectations and to give them a clear structure.
