Dyslexia-Inspired Learning: Pictures, Meaning and Permanence

Dyslexia-Inspired Learning: Pictures, Meaning and Permanence

SEND Group
Updated Apr 20, 2020

Sometimes, traditional approaches to dyslexia rely on "hard graft" repetition and rote learning that produce short-term results but fall short on permanence of learning and a conceptual grasp of the subject matter.

 As a Davis methods trainer, dyslexia author, and former SENCo, Richard will share key insights into: 

- the assets of the dyslexic thinking style

- why consistency of focus can be difficult during conventional learning, and how this can be remedied

- how to create a single, qualitative learning experience as an antidote to repetition and rote. 

There will be a particular focus on multisensory learning that emphasises pictures and meaning; examples will demonstrate how the Davis approach utilises plasticine clay to bring words and images together to anchor meaning.
