international schools help dyslexia - primary level

we moved to Spain in august and enrolled our children in an international school. one of our children who is in year 5 has dyslexia and we were promised from the moment we made our enquiry with the school we chose that support would be given. we have had meetings with both the teacher and principle and still very little action taken. the principle described her as 'special needs' - now anybody who has come into contact with children with dyslexia knows that it just means they learn in a different way. although there are only 7 students in the class the teacher cannot see how she can find time to do some one-on-one reading with our daughter. we are getting out of school help but she needs it on a daily basis within the classroom - could anybody recommend a international school that could provide this. we would be very grateful for any suggestions.

Dyslexia in Costa bravo
by: Sian

Hi there

Can anyone advise on how schools in Spain, Costa bravo (Alicante) help with dyslexic students? We are moving from the uk to Spain next year and our 13 year old son is Dyslexic, he’s so social and outgoing but school has never been easy. He’s super up for and excited about moving abroad and conversing with his attitude to speaking to others we feel confident he will be ok; however I’m not sure about how the Spanish school system works with Dyslexic kids academically.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Sian

Hi,

I am a dyslexia specialist on the costa del sol with many years of experience. I was Head of Special Needs and English as an Additional Language at a leading international school here on the costa before spending 6 years in Kuwait at the leading school there.

I now work with dyslexic children on the costa, some within the school they attend.

I also work with many nationalities to improve English from primary to top secondary. I have been an oral examiner at all levels of English as an additional language. I teach English to Proficiency level.

Don't worry there is lots of great help available for your daughter
by: Catherine Copeland

Dyslexia is one of many recognised learning difficulties common in today´s classroom. At Sotogrande International School we think that all of our students have special needs and we support all of our student´s learning styles through differentiation, targeted learning and flexible grouping. We have a personalised learning approach and have targeted reading groups and maths groups. Additionally we use technology as an assistive learning tool which can help students with dyslexia with their learning (for example using iPads to read stories aloud or to create content). Our Learning support teachers are available for additional one to one support if it is deemed necessary. Every class has a team of teachers and learning assistants to enable as much attention to the student´s needs as possible. We track student progress and encourage student ownership of learning through e-portfolios and student-led conferencing. If you would like to understand how we can become the ideal learning environment for your child both from academic, emotional and social perspectives, please feel welcome to make an appointment with the Admissions department. All information can be found on our website www.sis.gl. Catherine Copeland, Head of Primary, SIS

She is working with the International School in La Mareina which is just above Elviria on top of the hill.
The school in La Mareina have recognised the problem and therefore are integrating tuition for Dyslexia as part of there cericulam?
You will not be disappointed the solution is there.
Very good to see that you are a parent that is willing recognise the urgent need for support .
