By kind invitation of Bernadette Mclean, Chief Executive of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre (www.arkellcentre.org.uk), I was presenting there today. A delightful group of staff and teachers who were really interested in “Visual Literacy: How people learn visually”.
Many teachers know how to teach visually, but few know how children learn visually. Bridges to Success – How to Transform Learning Difficulties, is one of the few books Bernadette recommends, for its different perspective and focus on dyslexic’s strengths and exceptional skills. Everyone talked about how they could see using the skills they were learning with those they assess for Dyslexia and teach.
