Many thanks to Patoss – Barnet and Enfield. Patoss is the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties. On Saturday 28th January I was invited to come and talk with this group. It was really enjoyable and a great audience of about 50 teachers, Sencos and Patoss Assessors.
The content started off with some information about the recent initiative of Dept of Education, BDA, Dyslexia Action, Dyspraxia Foundation, Helen Arkell , MMU, Patoss. You can get more information here and a link through to these FREE on-line recordings and resources. I spoke about how this connects really well with the work we do at Empowering Learning.
We then continued with topics from the #EmpoweringLearning #Jumpstartingliteracy and numeracy programme covering our strength based approach, neuroscience support, use of mental imagery, metacognition, etc and ended with a demonstration with someone from the audience. The talk was very well received and I look forward to working with many of the audience again.
On 22nd February I will be speaking at the Brent Patoss group, with a talk entitled “When mental imagery goes wrong with Dyslexia and ADHD”. I do hope you can join us there. You can access some of the follow-up material here.
