A very comprehensive course that explained the fundamentals of dyslexia, learning, reading, and writing in youth. It built on itself week by week. Work load was fairly light and easy to review.

This course is full of well-presented research, clear lectures, and excellent resources for teachers. I signed up to this course after privately tutoring an older student with suspected dyslexia and feeling frustrated about how best to support him. Even though my MA covered aspects of dyslexia and support, I felt that it was probably out of date given the amount of research that's been published since I graduated. The course has been incredibly helpful with as a refresher and a more in-depth look at the causes and therefore ways of supporting students with reading (and writing) difficulties. I particularly appreciated the focus on bilingualism as this reflects my school population. I highly recommend it to other teachers, Das, and people working with struggling readers.

In this very challenging times of pandemic, we need to channel our minds to things that can help not only ourselves but other people too. While I was doing a little advocacy of my own to teach kids with reading difficulties for free, I just randomly search for a free course to guide me through. In the beginning I thought of just taking the course without the certificate and just browse on the pages. Each lesson felt like an enlightenment and not a requirement. I was inspired by the knowledge and efforts of all the contributors in this course that I decided to take the route to getting the certificate instead. Thank you Coursera. I was led to the best online course I've done so far in supporting children with difficulties in reading and writing.

I found this course to be extremely informative, filled with the latest research findings and recommendations to assist those working with dyslexic learners to improve reading comprehension and writing. I have a better understanding of dyslexia, exspecially the psychological and neurological aspects. I have learned how the English language has evolved (opaque) and the challenges this presents to those with dyslexia. This course if filled with suggestions on how to make a learning environment more inclusive for those with dyslexia, incorporating multisensory teaching methods and explanations of the different learning styles, including planning to adjust to working memory capacity of learner. I highly recommend this course- don't miss it!

Very good course, I've learned a lot about Dislexia and learning disabilities but also I've learned to teach better

I have really learned so much from this course. Thanks to my most noble facilitators and guide, Dr. Jenny Thomason and Dr. Vincent Goetry. Both of you did a tremendous job and your commitment to supporting children with difficulties in reading and writing is extraordinary. Thank you for giving me the knowledge I need to help more students who have difficulties in reading across all subject areas. I felt that I have just completed a Bachelors's degree in pursuing this course. Thank you! Thank you!. I would suggest that the feedback and discussion forum be more active as there is a lack of presence as it relates to feedback and communication with students. There were some answers to the quiz that was correct but the answers were marked incorrectly.

This course provided lot of information in supporting children with difficulties in reading and writing. This course is beneficial to educators and other professionals that work with children.

I deeply enjoyed the lectures, resources, videos, and links. Jenny and Vincent are absolutely knowledgeable and the sweetest instructors. I felt well accompanied along the course while also learning so much. I would like to know (I will navigate more in depth) if there are other courses/certificates/degrees that may cover even more on the subjects of educational psychology to support children and adults. The only frustration I felt was the way some questions are presented in the tests. I felt that some questions are not necessarily helpful to assess one acquired knowledge; more specifically those questions where one has to write a word (noun, verb, otherwise, in lower or capital letters, etc). The written assignments were very helpful and an important learning tool; nothing better than working directly with typical/atypical developing children. I am deeply thankful for this course. Thank you.

I really appreciated the reflective elements of this course, to dig into the materials presented and look from a variety of perspectives at the challenges faced by learners. It allows me to more clearly recognize where my students might be struggling and how to best support them. However there are a few aspects to this course that I think could use improvement, like accessibility! The course is really densely packed, but tests were often about very specific uses of language and turns of phrase, and in the last test, on German and Spanish language, which was rather irrelevant for a course in English language! I also think anyone with dyslexia might have a right challenging time accessing the information. However, the information itself was really very useful and would greatly impact the effectiveness of teachers and parents everywhere!

Overall I greatly enjoyed the content of the course and got a lot out of the videos, readings and resources included. I did feel that the final exam did not feature enough questions pertaining to the main focus of the course including signs of dyslexia, strategies to assist students with dyslexia and terminology. Also the two assessment tasks did not have a clear marking criteria so in both cases we were required to include specific terminology or a specific element of the course content that we were never explicitly told to use in the assessment and thus students marks suffered for not including these specifics. Thank you overall for a very engaging course. I truly feel that I am now ready to apply the strategies learnt in this course in the classroom to the benefit of my students.

Hi! This is Rosehera Furtado. I take this opportunity to thank the Coursera community for making me part of your Institution. It was my first online course and I found it very helpful, a good learning experience. Being a religious nun (Sr. Rosehera Furtado A.C.), I wanted to do this course primarily because the main focus of our Congregation is Education. So by doing this course, I feel that it will be very much effective in my ministry. Also I want to thank all my classmates for their kind support especially in assessing my assignments. God bless you all!

Excellent course! I learnt lots of practical tips for implementation with children while gaining a better theoretical understanding of dyslexia. It would be ideal if the instructors can provide more guidance on using the intervention materials and have three weeks of lessons on teaching approaches instead of two. Overall, the workload can be rather heavy at times too, so it may be beneficial to have videos and assessments spread evenly across the course duration as far as possible.

A very very helpful course that gives practical solutions in a classroom and school-wide setting. It was structured well and easy to follow. If I had one comment, it would be that some of the quizzes did not line up with the course so well (you had to study ahead to answer questions). Other than this, really worth the amount of time spent studying!

I like the way it is organized, I had really learned about dyslexic children characteristics and how to help them. I liked the assignments. The thing I would have change will be the quizzes, which I believe they evaluate more memory than really understanding

I love how the course provides us with teaching demonstrations and interviews with SEN teacher aside from lecture :) And I have learnt many practical ways in teaching children with dyslexia after this course.

I really appreciate the information presented in this course. Very thorough. However it did become quite monotonous. All in all, good quality information provided to be able to help students.

Interesting and useful to a degree, but I was looking for something a little more challenging. In addition, the quizzes were far too easy.

1.Too much theory

2. Not enough examples

3. Outdated video formats.

It has been decades since I finished my masters in early childhood education. I got married and raised three sons. All are grown up now. I have been working as a directress of a preparatory school for many years and it has kept me busy. The pandemic though has given me the chance to learn through Coursera. I am thankful that I enrolled in this course: supporting children with difficulties in reading and writing. I got enlightened as to the thought processes of reading and language acquisition and how to address difficulties in children who need support the most. Jenny's and Vincent's thoughts and advice will now be ingrained in me as I go on my task of educating the very young. Thank you so much.
