Maths and Dyslexia

Leave a comment

This cartoon made me smile – as I am currently writing a Maths book for visual learners, hoping it won’t end up in the Horror Section.

It’s very exciting to see the pictures that come back from the artist and how it will be used to teach visual learners the times tables – very quickly and easily. Having used this method, which I have developed over the years, on many of my clients – it will be great that it will soon be available in a book to add extra reminders and visuals.

Interestingly, most non-dyslexic people find it really complicated and cannot believe how easy their dyslexic child picks it up, even if they had previously struggled for years to get the 6-, 7- and 8-times tables.

I’ll keep you posted on the progress!

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.
