Sculpture by Robert Toth

Robert Toth

Robert Toth repeated forth grade three times. As a child he often felt awkward. He didn’t learn to read until he was twelve, and he was diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD. Only when he realized that he had an artistic talent, he found that he didn’t have an attention problem at all. Quite the opposite, when sculpting or painting, he developed a hyperfocus. He gives a lot of credit to Ron Davis to help him understand how he learns and the gifts inherent in him.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
