Human strengths such as problem solving, creativity and the natural instinct to continually adapt to change are qualities commonly associated with dyslexia.  

Tory Sparks

Click HERE to read the full description.

Human strengths such as problem solving, creativity and the natural instinct to continually adapt to change are qualities commonly associated with dyslexia. How does the formal diagnostic assessment process contribute to our understanding of how such strengths and strategies are used in times of transition? Over the past weeks we have all found ourselves in a period of significant change having to face and overcome challenges. Having resources and strategies to hand helps us ‘transit’ more effectively from one situation to another. People with dyslexia may often find transition periods demanding, such as moving from primary to secondary school or managing change in the workplace. In her presentation, Tory will explore how the diagnostic assessment process can help individuals, and those who support them, develop their self-awareness and enhance their understanding of how they learn and work best.

Picture Thinking: A Key to Dyslexic Learning

Richard Whitehead

Click HERE to read the full description.

It is no secret that dyslexic individuals commonly excel in one or more area of creativity and/or physical activity. When engaged in tasks that they do well in, it is as if they have no learning difficulty. In the classroom, dyslexic individuals can thrive in learning experiences that utilise the dyslexic individual’s own creativity. In the “Gift of Dyslexia” Davis methods, the dyslexic individual uses their own creativity to create a single, qualitative learning experience that brings words and images together to anchor meaning. In this seminar, Richard will show examples drawn from his work with the methods to illustrate how many areas of academic learning can be unlocked for dyslexic learners through guided creativity.
