Carvalhais, Lenia; da Silva, Carlos Fernandes
Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, v8 n2 p1-8 2010
The focus of this study was to explore primary teachers' attitudes and perceptions toward their training experiences, instructional practices, and supports received in their schools toward working with students with dyslexia in Portugal. Primary school teachers from the centre of Portugal, working with children between the first and fourth grades, were asked to complete a questionnaire, organized into two parts: the first part, consisted of 5 questions related to teachers personal information; while the second part, included 7 questions, which related to teachers knowledge and training experiences toward working with children with dyslexia. Results indicated from the questionnaire that teachers believe there is a significant gap in their training needs and further in-service trainings are warranted to working with children with dyslexia to promote their academic success in the classroom.
