Breaking Barriers to Literacy

A free research-into-practice event for primary teachers and education practitioners

Run jointly by Reading University's Institute of Education and Centre for Literacy & Multilingualism

Following on from a successful research-into-practice event last year, the Institute of Education (IoE), partnered and funded by the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM), are staging another for 2017. This event will draw on presentations from both academics and practitioners in order to make links between research and practice related to potential barriers to literacy for primary aged children.

Breaking Barriers to Literacy takes place on

Thursday May 25th 2017

1.30 - 6.00pm

The Institute of Education, London Road Campus, Redlands Road, Reading

The event will focus on four areas of research and practice:

  • Dyslexia
  • Language Impairment
  • Reading and the home literacy environment
  • English as an Additional Language

The first part of the afternoon gives attendees the opportunity to hear presentations on all four areas of literacy and language teaching from IoE and CeLM academics joined by expert practitioners. For the second part of the afternoon attendees select from workshop discussions to explore one of the areas in more depth.

This event will be of interest to primary school teachers and senior managers, specialist learning support assistants, speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and local authority personnel.

Admission is free to this event but numbers are restricted. Sign up early to guarantee your place and your first choice for the workshop.
