Informative Workshops help to handle Dyslexia & the onset of Adolescence
On 1st September 2018 a workshop on "Introduction to Learning Disability" was conducted for the teachers of Grade I to VI at DPS Nashik. It began with an activity which involved the teachers to write 5 sentences about themselves with the non-preferred hand (i.e. right-handed teachers would write with their left hand and vice-versa). The handwriting was then analysed and discussed to understand the complexities faced by a child with dyslexia. The workshop also included a reading activity which focussed on the problems faced by an LD (Learning Disability) child while reading in a classroom scenario. The teachers were asked to identify such students and take measures to give them complete school support with the help of the School Counsellor. The session worked as an eye opener as it widened the knowledge and awareness of teachers regarding this sensitive subject.
Adolescence is a transitional stage of physical and psychological development in a child’s life. It is a very sensitive period for a child as the child goes through a lot of hormonal and emotional changes. Keeping this in mind, DPS Nashik conducted an informative session on “Dealing with Adolescents" for teachers of Grade VII to XII. 22 teachers attended the session and discussed the problems faced by adolescent students and the techniques to deal with it. Teachers were briefed about the serious impacts of corporal punishment on the academic development of students. Different case references and examples were shown to teachers to better handle the students at this age. The session also focussed on 'No Touch Policy' and addressed the importance of the state of mind of teachers while they are dealing with high school students.
