Come and join us on Monday 26th November if you would like to learn more about dyslexia. This workshop will be lead by SENDCo Mrs Ewart from 2.30pm.
‘Dyslexia is a learning difference: a combination of strengths and weaknesses which affects the learning process.’ This means that children who have dyslexia learn in ways that are different from other children. In the United Kingdom, 1 in 10 people have dyslexia: Dyslexia affects boys and girls equally and there is evidence that it can run in families.
Many people consider that the thinking style that causes dyslexia is a gift, a natural ability, and in fact a talent. Consider some of the famous Dyslexics who excelled because of their dyslexia: Richard Branson, Tom Cruise, Walt Disney, Jim Carrey, Whoopi Goldberg and Keira Knightly. Not everyone with dyslexia will become famous or be a genius but it is good to know that their mind works in the same way.
