Supporting Students with Learning Difficulties: Trends and Issues Saturday 18 August, to 5 pm at the Camberwell Centre, 340 Camberwell Road, Camberwell Outline of Seminar This seminar focuses on trends and issues relating to the teaching of students with learning difficulties, with a particular focus on the scientific evidence relating to effective instructional practices.

Starting with a historical perspective, it traces the recognition of the special needs of students with learning difficulties in Australian schools, and the development of programs to support these needs.

Subsequent papers focus on the scientific evidence relating to the cognitive processes underlying learning and reading acquisition, and the implications of this research for teaching techniques in general and reading instruction in particular.

Abstracts of Papers Dr Jo Jenkinson Formerly Consultant at ACER and Senior Lecturer at Deakin University Reading, Resources and Remedies: A History of Learning Difficulties Australia Abstract: Learning Difficulties Australia, formerly the Australian Remedial Education Association, began life more than 40 years ago as the Diagnostic and Remedial Teachers Association of Victoria.

Since its inception as a body of educators and other professionals dedicated to the support of students with learning difficulties, the association has been active in disseminating information on research and practice relating to the field of learning difficulties, and in providing professional support for teachers and other professionals working with students with learning difficulties.

It has established a referral service for qualified remedial consultants, published some 130 issues of an internationally recognised journal, made submissions to government enquiries and to tertiary institutions, organised workshops and seminars for teachers, and established relationships with other professional bodies concerned with learning difficulties.
