I want to change the focus of #learningdifficulties away from the individual having a deficit to offering our teachers and parents the best skills to enable our exceptionally talented, creative and imaginative children to learn in a way that works best for them.
#Mentalimagery has been used for decades in sport to achieve excellence and completely ignored by the education system. Teachers are taught to show children pictures; this is visual teaching but unless you ask the child, you have no idea how they are storing this information; this is visual learning and the qualities of your mental images are 95% of visual learning.
Once you have improved the quality of your mental images and become consciously aware of your own experience you can use them for all aspects of learning; literacy, numeracy, concentration, comprehension, revision etc.
It is a crime not to teach these skills in primary school.
Some children will pick them up naturally whilst others flounder around in a sea of confusion, entering a downward spiral of more and more learning difficulties; whether or not they are formally diagnosed. Our children become stressed to hell, their behaviour deteriorates, their self esteem vanishes. If you are lucky some become resilient to all the bullying and feeling stupid to go onto greatness like #RichardBranson, #JamieOliver, Einstein, #JackieStewart and many more like those people featured in the recent film “#The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia”. But there millions worldwide who are not so lucky, flounder around in frustration and confusion, and some resorting to suicide when they feel stupid or are being bullied.
It doesn’t have to be like this, we have evidence. so just sign up to this chanel, we are going to blow up some of the myths around #Dyslexia. Join us and tell your friends.
