in people and the global set of their abilities, which is why helping them with
dyslexia reaching their maximum potential is part of our DNA and we have become
through the years one of the best dyslexia boarding schools in Wales.
The characteristic features of dyslexia are difficulties in
phonological awareness, verbal memory and verbal processing speed. Unlike a
learning disability, intelligence isn't affected, and it's estimated up to 1 in
every 10 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia. St David’s College is
part of the British Dyslexia Association as silver members and award sponsors
of their annual British Dyslexia Association Awards. Today the British
Dyslexia Association annual Gala Dinner will be returning to the prestigious
Twickenham Rugby Stadium for a memorable evening of entertainment to
celebrate their 50th anniversary as well as the best schools for
dyslexia. The event will be uplifted by inspiring stories as we recognise
individuals and outstanding dyslexia-friendly companies for their commitment
and accomplishments. There will be opportunities to network and reconnect with
the dyslexic community as we come together in celebration of past, present and
future successes in our mission to provide support for those with Dyslexia
across the UK.
Many awards will be given and St David’s College are sponsoring
the Cadogan Award for Resilience.
At St David’s we are proud to have the Cadogan Centre to support
all the pupils with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, and dysgraphia. All
classroom and wider curriculum teachers have qualifications in multi-sensory
teaching techniques, allowing them to tailor their teaching to individual
learning styles. All teachers are experienced in supporting pupils with barriers to learning such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia.
We have already witnessed with great pride numerous cases of students with difficulties who have flourished and taken advantage of the best of themselves. That is why we are frequently chosen by parents with children with dyslexia from all over the world who are looking for the best dyslexia school with a solid holistic program.
We permanently encouraged all the teachers to explore ideas like using multisensory technique for teaching different subjects that requires to memorise certain terminology such as science, maths, etc… All of this will help inspire and make pupils feel comfortable so that they can maintain their attention. As we say in St David’s College, “Never Give Up”.
