Dear All,

Teachers’ Resource Centre has initiated a series of talks from January 2016 that focus on issues around educational pedagogy, understanding the IB system, successful interventions in school management, special needs and inclusive education. These talks are delivered by speakers with an educational background, enriched by valuable experience in their relevant field. The talk sessions are followed by a question-answer session to enhance the value of the discussion for all the participants.

Identifying learning disabilities early can pave the way for children to get the support they need to experience successful futures both in and out of school. Knowing the early warning signs that put young children at risk for learning disabilities and understanding normal developmental milestones helps with early diagnosis and intervention.

This talk has been arranged to provide school authorities the opportunity to meet and discuss the signs and symptoms of learning difficulties experienced by school children. The meeting provides an opportunity to discuss the means of early identification of children with learning issues and ways and means of meeting the needs of children with difficulties.

The main objectives of the interactive talk session are:
• what are learning difficulties
• how do learning difficulties present in the classroom
• case studies describing students with learning difficulties
• strategies to help children with learning difficulties

The details of the talk session are as follows:
