- ACER resource aims to build resilience in dyslexic students
A new ACER Press resource being launched in Melbourne tomorrow aims to assist students who have dyslexia to develop more effective coping skills and feel a greater sense of well being.
Success and Dyslexia: Sessions for coping in the upper primary years, by Melbourne-based academics Dr Nola Firth and Associate Professor Erica Frydenberg, is an evidence-based program that assists students with dyslexia to increase their ability to take control of and cope with the problems that occur in their lives. It is estimated that one in ten students in Australia have dyslexia.
- The Hard Work of Improvement
A common strategy for promoting improved employee or organisational performance is to place a strong focus on organisational results. For example, in commercial businesses, it is common to focus on results such as sales volumes, total business revenue, annual company profit or share price. With desired results clearly identified, results metrics are then established to measure existing performance levels, set targets for improvement, monitor improvement over time and hold employees accountable for achieving better results.
