WEBINAR: Preparation & Presentation: Assisting Dyslexics’ Comprehension & Retention of Information

Time: 7.30pm – 8.30pm

£10 ticket with CPD certificate (PDF) provided

The session will include:

It is possible for the early stages of acquiring information to happen in a dyslexic-friendly way. When they do so, dyslexic people have better opportunities to learn and to use their learning. In this webinar, I will look at the dyslexic-friendly elements of preparation and of presentation of information.

Acquiring information is not restricted to formal, educational situations; it is also relevant in the workplace, while shopping, during travelling, for banking – in short in all of life.

Who the webinar might be for:

The content of the webinar is relevant to all teachers and communicators, and to dyslexic people of all ages. Parents and others who live or work with dyslexic people will also benefit: understanding more about dyslexic-friendly processes leads to better communication.

Presenter:

Ginny Stacey did not realise she was dyslexic until her mid-20s. She has 2 degrees in physics from Oxford University, but cannot do arithmetic.  She uncovered the patterns of her dyslexic mind to learn to play classical guitar. She now enjoys the vagaries of her dyslexic mind.

When Ginny first worked in the dyslexia field, she knew that she would not believe what she was describing about the way her mind worked if she couldn’t see it happening, so how could she expect others to believe her.  She devised a series of activities which generate dyslexic/ SpLD effects in non-dyslexic/ SpLD minds to help others to understand.  ‘A Taste of Dyslexia’ is a DVD of a work shop that includes several of these activities.

Ginny is committed to helping other dyslexics achieve their potential.  She developed a range of highly effective techniques for supporting dyslexic students that are widely used in universities and colleges.  She has become a nationally-recognised expert in the field.

Ginny developed the dyslexia support system at Oxford Brookes University from 1991 – 2004 and held a post at Oxford University for 2 years from 2005.  Since 2007, she has been a freelance support tutor while writing a series of books on dyslexia/ SpLD, to be published by Routledge.
