If you are a parent of a child diagnosed with Dyslexia, you need to read this.
We have been doing more work on the strengths and talents exhibited by people with various learning differences, including Dyslexia. Looking at people’s strengths enables you to understand how people do what they do. Underneath many of these strengths you will find exceptional skills for creating and manipulating mental images. This is what lead #EmpoweringLearning into becoming experts in mental imagery and discovering how to teach creative and imaginative big picture thinkers how to make literacy, numeracy and so much more easier when using their superior mental images.
We were delighted to see Richard Branson launching #madebydyslexia with the words “It is time we changed the stigma around dyslexia. It is not a disadvantage; it is merely a different way of thinking.” Head over to Made by Dyslexia to read their new report: Connecting the Dots – Understanding Dyslexia, which contains valuable research on these strengths and also the public perception of Dyslexia.
