Leave a comment

Today we had a PD session at school led by Ros Lugg from the Learning Staircase. Teachers from around the Franklin area were invited and we ended up with 58 teachers, teacher aides, Senior Leaders, RTLBs and others in our hall for the day.

The session began looking at how dyslexia is researched. What are the facts about dyslexia as they currently stand. It was explained that as research continues into the way children and adults learn and as we learn more about how the brain develops.


STEPs has the ability to measure the speed with which students can recognise words from 800milliseconds down to 50 milliseconds.

To choose the appropriate workbook level any spelling test which gathers spelling ‘age’ is appropriate. STEPS online has a build in test.
