Changing Dyslexia for a new decade

from this

.

Whilst so many children are being home schooled parents are having all sorts of challenges and are often realising just how much their children are struggling with literacy. This is an offer to you to take a different perspective on Dyslexia, challenging the ideas of the old decades and setting our children free to learn in the way that best suits their skills.  Entitled Changing Dyslexia for a new decade, I am offering you 10 teleclasses, recorded with various colleagues, a little earlier in the year to address specific symptoms. The topics are:

  • It is not phonics or word recognition, it is both, plus Julia Barker and June Baker
  • Grounding and good breathing to reduce anxiety and create a learning state, plus Cheryl Winter
  • Developing visual skills for learning anything, plus Cheryl Winter
  • A neurodivergent school coach for every school, with several EL Practitioners
  • Moving to Fluency, with Yvonne Fox.
  • Exploring Sensory Overload in Dyslexia, with Anne Smith
  • Why is spelling harder than reading
  • When Dyslexia overlaps with ADHD and other neurodivergent labels
  • How NLP and Coaching can help clients with learning differences plus Emma Hossack
  • Releasing anxiety with EFT plus Judy Bartkowiak

Changing Dyslexia for a new decade

A series of 10 recorded webinars with Olive Hickmott and some of the Empowering Learning Practitioners to discuss the most challenging topics with Dyslexia for this decade. How changes that can be simply and easily made, for the benefit of students, parents and teachers, are discussed. You will be able to download the series at a special price during the current challenging education time.

£95.00

Neurodivergent Wednesday: Working with Neurodivergent strengths to mitigate ADHD and ASD.

2pm on Wednesday 13th May: Register here to join the webinar

How do you control all this?

Last week I talked about Neurodivergent strengths. This week it is how to work with those strengths to become exceptional and not be overwhelmed.

How young can you notice these symptoms, leading to ADHD or ASD? Were you or your child born with fabulous mental imagery and neurodivergent thinking and learning? What happened as you/they grew up? Did you just get more confused?

How do you move from the 1st to the 2nd cartoon? Find out in just a few minutes how to make a start.

The event consists of a short (max 15 mins) session, that is recorded, and then an unrecorded question and answer discussion. Do join in if you can and bring your questions along.
