How true! Sometimes it’s hard for people to accept labels and they think it’s an ‘easy way out’ or a way to avoid disciplinary a child. And it’s not even important to have or put a label on a child, but to understand the reasons for their differences and difficulties.

Deep down, children like to learn, want to be good, to be loved and to make their parents and teachers proud. When things get too hard, they start losing confidence in their abilities. Sometimes we just all need a bit of help, understanding and listening.

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.
