Dyslexia Scotland Conference “Dyslexia: Beyond Words” September 2013

This conference was a great success, with more than 200 delegates from all over Scotland coming to Perth for the event.  The theme of  “Dyslexia: beyond words” was developed throughout the day to drive home a series of inspirational  messages about the positive nature of Dyslexia together with a range of strategies and approaches to make things better.  My Keynote focused on “Changing whole school perceptions of Dyslexia” and used the excellent Dyslexia Friendly Schools project in South Ayrshire as the model for best practice.  I have been privileged to provide training and consultancy to schools and groups of teachers in South Ayrshire as part of this initiative and am very proud to be part of it.  My keynote shared some of the changes in classroom practice that I have presented to teachers in the Authority and which have been implemented to great effect.  Read the full account in "Articles and News"

Client Feedback

I shared the ideas and methods that I learned in the course with my colleagues in a sharing session after the final examination in the 2015-2016 school year. I recommended colleagues to attend this course as this is the most stimulating and inspiring course that I, as a teacher with more than 20 years of experience, have ever attended. Not only is the course presenting theories, it also introduces a lot of practical teaching ideas, teaching aids and resources such as websites to colleagues. I will suggest the principal to allocate funds and human resources to build up teaching materials and aids such as vocabulary writing cards with sound boxes, alphabet arcs and clothes line and pegs for sentence building, etc.
