Loving this week - Dyslexia


Last night I went to a seminar about Dyslexia.

I went there in hopes to find a way to understand my Little J
and instead I found myself having alot of those "Ah ha" moments.

My school years, my first office jobs.... my difficulty understanding written instructions..... the list goes on.

Laughton King was the speaker and is himself Dyslexic,
or what he likes to call Diesel...
he was very entertaining and well worth listening too.

I'm loving that I made the effort to go along...
I walked away armed not only with valuable information to help my boys, but also a better understanding of myself
plus a few other family members

Laughton King is doing a small town tour at the moment... so if you see his name in your parts.... I strongly recommend going along for a listen.... I don't think you will be disappointed.

Oh that is pretty cool. My brother is dyspraxic, which is more about co-ordintaion and handwriting, which he is not very good at it.
Glad to hear that it was very informative!!

It's interesting to look back and see similarities in our childhood isn't it? One of my boys was diagnosed with ADHD this year, also with a non specific learning disorder where he struggles with spelling. I've been researching alot to do with ADHD and ADD since and I'm now so sure I'm probably who he has inherited it from...I looked back on my school reports, all which said I struggle to concentrate and focus.So many factors point to this in my life!

Sounds fabulous! My Dad and brother are dyslexic, and have often been made to feel dumb when in fact they are so intelligent! What a great sounding seminar.
