Skills for neurodivergent students – Jan 13th

Would you like to know more about the tool-box we have developed for assisting Dyslexic, ADHD and Autistic students, based on their strengths?

Olive Hickmott is an Author, Trainer and Forensic Learning Coach.  She has been an expert in how neurodivergent children best learn and it is not being taught as if they are neurotypical.  She is an international expert in how children learn visually and how neglecting these strengths contributes to Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Aspergers and Autism.  The most serious consequence is that many develop stress, anxiety, self-harm, are traumatised, bullied as they drift into a host of mental health symptoms.
Empowering Learning has skills to change this in primary school, and neurodivergent learning coaches to work alongside hard-pressed teachers and SENCOs, to minimise learning difficulties before children progress to senior school.  Learning differences should not lead to learning difficulties. 
Olive is speaking at The White Horse, Bourne End, HP1 2RH 9:30-11:30 Jan 13th, £10. Do come and join us and gain some different perspectives for what you can do quickly and easily to assist neurodivergent students. She will be summarising her vision of a new decade for Dyslexia and how we could make Hertfordshire a Dyslexia-free county.
