An average of the 6% of the world population is estimated to be dyslexic. Dyslexia is a learning disability that often causes an early drop out of learning for those students with such characteristic. On the basis of recent scientific studies, the GATE project objective is to develop a methodology and related operational materials for:- the identification of pupils at risk of dislexia in pre-primary schools- provision of specific support to those pupils in pre-primary and primary schools.The project will then focus on vertical continuity between pre-primary and primary schools in providing support to pupils at risk of dyslexia.The methodology and operational materials to be developed will mainly target pre-primary and primary teachers but will be completed by a raining and information iter (TII) to foster the comunication between teachers and families. Parents in fact will play a central role in granting an efficacious communication between pre-primary and primary teachers. The final beneficiaries will be pupils aged from 4 to 7, i.e. Those passing from pre-primary to primary school.Moreover, the diffusion of the knowledge among teachers and parents on the specific methodologies adopted for supporting pupils at risk of dyslexia will create a creative and recreational learning environment both at school and at home.The project will also create an European network on the topic (GATE Network) aiming at involving all relevant stakeholders for the promotion of project results and of the adoption of the GATE system (the final project product) in pre-primary and primary schools across Europe. For the GATE system exploitation, an operative scheme targeting School Principals will also be developed. The synergic action of the GATE network and of the dissemination and exploitation activities will grant a deep impact of the project on the beneficiaries, both in the partner countries and in other EU one.
