In October 2010 Skagerak International School commenced the process of becoming a dyslexia friendly school, and at the beginning of 2011 we became the 11th school in Norway – and the first international school – to receive the award from the Norwegian Dyslexia Association. It was emphasized that we had done pioneer work by being the first school in Norway where English speaking students could be assessed and diagnosed using English assessment programmes, recommended by the British Dyslexia Association. We are also certified to use the Norwegian LOGOS test, a diagnostic dyslexia test.
Skagerak International School is a member of the Norwegian Dyslexia Association and participates regularly in their annual two-day conference. We are also members of a network of Norwegian dyslexia friendly schools, including the Norwegian School in Gran Canaria. These schools meet on an annual basis and participate in lectures and workshops, as well as exchanging ideas and experiences.
We recommend families with dyslexia to become members of Dysleksi Norge (Norwegian Dyslexia Association). They are very helpful and knowledgeable. www.dysleksinorge.no
