Abstract

Because of their learning difficulties, dyslexic children are often looked upon as being the lowest common denominator on the academic scale, or even regarded as problem students. Using traditional methodologies and new technologies, this project allowed students with specific learning difficulties to utilise, examine, explore, plan and design new thematic programmes which permitted them to go beyond the apparent barriers of the 'chalk and talk' classroom to experience the joy of learning and explore avenues of thought. The results of their work are now benefiting all students, and teachers, at all levels as the lowest common denominator has become the highest productive factor. One such child is Tom. His case study epitomises the path this journey has taken and together with his story, the programmes which eventually resulted from all our experiences. Daithí Ó Murchû.
