Here's an interesting article from today's paper. The Teach for Australia program runs six weeks of training for academically-capable postgrads, then sends them to a disadvantaged school while continuing their training.
I recently came across this very helpful guide for studio teachers who have students with dyslexia. The guide gives info about what dyslexia is, how to develop positive teacher/student rapport, inclusion of multi-sensory teaching methods, what to do with challenges such as performing, sightreading, and memorising. A lot of the tips are handy for all types of teachers and so can help all music students (inclusive education). The guide also contains information about examination requirements and adjustments. This is a British guide, so their info is about UK-based examination boards. The AMEB provide similar adjustments for students with learning disabilities.
