  • Would interventions/accommodations in the strategies for teaching drawing be useful for pupils with dyslexia who have drawing difficulties?

Rankin, Qona and RIley, Howard, 2018, Conference or Workshop, Would interventions/accommodations in the strategies for teaching drawing be useful for pupils with dyslexia who have drawing difficulties? at BDA 11th International Conference, Telford, UK, 12-14 April 2018.

Abstract or Description:

Our previous research, based on interviews with and observations of, post-graduate art and design students at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and secondary school students, (from five London based schools), has revealed that some highly creative individuals with dyslexia and or dyspraxia feel impoverished by what they perceive as a lack of observational drawing ability. We have argued that this particular lack of processing ability can be linked to some of the processing difficulties associated with dyslexia and dyspraxia and suggested that there is a sub-group of dyslexic/dyspraxic individuals adversely affected by poor observational drawing ability. We believe that the outcomes of this research will be of benefit to certain dyslexic and dyspraxic individuals who may be denied an art school tertiary level education because the requirements of the art curriculum as taught and examined in most secondary schools, discriminates against those who cannot produce an accurate drawing from observation.
