Primary School Teachers' Knowledge and Awareness of Dyslexia in Kuwaiti Students
Aladwani, Amel M.; Al Shaye, Shaye S.
Education, v132 n3 p499-516 Spr 2012
This study investigated Kuwaiti primary school teachers' knowledge and awareness of early signs of dyslexia among Kuwaiti students. To achieve this purpose, a survey was developed to collect data randomly from more than 700 participants of primary language teachers across Kuwait's six educational districts. The results showed that the majority of teachers lack the training, knowledge, and skills to diagnose the dyslexic students in their classroom. The results take us a few steps forward in asking about practical implications for practitioners, course designers, and ministry of education policymakers, where dyslexia and other learning disabilities are pressing & urgent issues for students, teachers, and specialist support staff.
