My thanks to Bernadette McLean, CEO of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, who has reviewed “Bridges to Success – How to Transform Learning Difficulties.”
Here is an extract, full review at hadcreview:
“Grounding is a technique to use when people are confused, overwhelmed and unable to focus; it is ideal for those learners who seem to have too much racing around in their heads and should also help those with co-ordination problems and who have difficulty controlling their bodies in space. After this exercise one feels more relaxed and calm, more in control.
We have had this experience in a training session at HADC where Olive Hickmott worked with a roomful of teachers who were all very positive in their feedback. I now use this with clients and with myself.
Equally powerful are other exercises for releasing stress and collecting energy.
Olive Hickmott’s passion and enthusiasm shine through her work. Her willingness to share her skills and knowledge demonstrate a real generosity of spirit. The book is enlivened by great illustrations and a great number of memorable case studies.”
