For Dyslexia Awareness Week, we are helping families and schools discover how bright children, who have great mental images, use them to improve literacy and numeracy in minutes, all for free. This has a really positive effect on those diagnosed with Dyslexia.
Mental imagery is a subject that few people know about, but everyone uses. If you didn’t have a mental image of your car how would you recognise it? If you didn’t have a mental image of your loved ones how would you recognise them?
Lack of understanding of mental imagery is at the route of many learning difficulties, learning differences, interdisciplinary minds and neuro-diversity. Their mental images give them access to fabulous skills and at the same time often deep confusion.
These people often have very fast brains, astounding imagery with exceptional access to knowledge and a lightening ability to connect together facts. When you have a lightening fast brain like a Ferrari and no breaks you can be in deep trouble, if you are not expert in the best way to drive a Ferrari.
