Dyslexia, poor literacy and numeracy can be a real block for nurses who are really dedicated and competent in every other aspect of their work.
Empowering Learning has now made available an on-line course that is designed to teach nurses how they can best use their skills of mental imagery to improve literacy, numeracy, concentration, memory and dyslexia.
Take a look here for more details. You can order on-line or call for a free discussion.
Your skills are invaluable don’t let them be lost to literacy and numeracy challenges.
From Helen: The lecturer is Olive Hickmott who is a neuro-linguistic programme practitioner, coach, researcher and author of several books including ‘Bridges to Success – How to Transform Learning Difficulties’ and co-author of ‘Seeing Spells Achieving’ – designed to improve reading, writing, spelling, memory and learning. A review of this book by the British Dyslexia Association magazine said, ‘…….. it is particularly appropriate for use with those dyslexics who believe they will never be able to spell……’
Olive says, ‘Everyone can visualise or picture an image in their mind’s eye and people with learning difficulties often have exceptional visual memory. This skill can be taught very quickly and helps to overcome many of the difficulties associated with learning difficulties, together with improving self esteem’. Olive will demonstrate how this ability can be developed to visualise words and numbers.
I do hope you can join us
