Workshop Series: Musical Activities Programme for Supporting Children with Dyslexia

Dates: May 2018 – November 2018

Locations: Reid School of Music, University of Edinburgh and Feversham Primary Academy, Bradford

This series of four interactive workshops is aimed at music specialists, classroom teachers and support for learning teachers who would like to learn about using music to support children with dyslexia. The workshops will offer materials and training to enable teachers to use a specialist musical activities programme (MAP) (Overy, 2008) designed to improve phonological and literacy skills in 7 to 11-year-old children with dyslexia. In each workshop we will provide opportunities to learn and practice the musical activities and space to share feedback on experiences using the activities.

The workshops are funded by an ESRC Impact Grant and will be run by Dr Katie Overy and Emma Moore in collaboration with our partner organisations, The City of Edinburgh Council Arts and Creative Learning Department and Feversham Primary Academy.
