This talk will give an entirely positive, and very personal, view of dyslexia and how to make the most of the funkiness that it brings our lives.
This talk will cover:
- A range of easy, low-tech tools that help dyslexic children to organise their ideas.
- How rhythm can support attention, memory, language, music practice, and typing.
- Techniques for supporting learning in the classroom and at home.
Rhythm is a very important part of skill development in all aspects of life, but in developing self-expression and self-regulation, rhythm has a special role to play in drama, music, dance and sport.
This is an epic journey of being lost and then found. The greatest gift we can give our children with dyslexia is to support their journey as they find themselves, and become extraordinary.
