Julie Kay has been a teacher of mathematics for twenty years. Starting as a Primary School teacher she feels that this gave her an excellent understanding of how to address the basic difficulties facing dyslexic students when learning Maths. She has taught at Mark College, a specialist school in Somerset for secondary-aged students with dyslexia, since 1990, has been Head of Maths since 1994 and Head Teacher until August 2010. Julie is about to start a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology.

Julie has co-written a series of worksheets, 'Worksheets Plus' designed for dyslexic students working on the NNS and published by Egon. She lectures on mathematics nationally and delivers in-service training for schools. She has conducted classroom studies with European partners into how dyslexic students learn mathematics and has co-presented the results at International and British Dyslexia Association conferences. Julie co-designed and delivered the first AMBDA (Maths) course, run in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University. She is co-author of, 'Dyslexia and Maths' published by the BDA/Fulton in 2003. She also co-produced a paper entitled, 'Classroom studies into cognitive style in mathematics for pupils with dyslexia in special education in the Netherlands, Ireland and the UK', published in British Journal of Special Education, Vol.28 in June 2001.

 

Target Audience

  • Teachers who teach mainly mathematics and numeracy

Some comments from previous presentation of this event:

Excellent and very informative. The course was well structured and met my needs and expectations, excellent presentation! Lots of info for non-mathematician, Julie Kay was very clear and enthusiastic. Number bond examples will be extremely useful.
