Ever wondered how students with learning difficulties have coped since their school years?
Did they find success, or were their opportunities affected by the same problems they encountered in the classroom?
Have you occasionally reflected on the effectiveness of your involvement?
What more might have you offered?
Is it possible to identify the elements that could ensure success for students with learning difficulty?
Reflections on Dyslexia is a 20 minute film designed for school administrators, teachers, parents & older students. It invites you into the lives of four adults who live with Dyslexia. Rick, Jane, Ross and Gemma tell how their learning difficulty has steered the choices they have made. They discuss the emotional issues behind Dyslexia, and how it has influenced their behaviour, opportunity and success. They share what has helped and what has hurt along the way so that you might begin to truly understand. Their hope is that their stories will urge you to review your opinion about learning difficulties, to exchange viewpoints with colleagues and parents, to gather more information and devise greater support options for students. The package also includes an information booklet that provides an overview of Dyslexia, workshop suggestions for teachers, useful print and web references and biographies about the participants in the film.
Reflections on Dyslexia is distributed to individuals, schools, colleges and tertiary institutions nationally and internationally.
