DYSLEXIA STRENGTHS DECATHLON BY ROD NICOLSON

As we continue to embrace dyslexia, we aim to produce and conduct workshops that focus on the strengths of our students with dyslexia.  The chart above provides an overview of the skill areas that workshops are designed and how the skills that each workshop focuses on can enhance the strength/s of our students with learning differences.  Each of these triads helps promote unconventional thinking among our students thereby helping them overcome their learning differences, by developing their own coping mechanism in their learning and their self-confidence.
