Dyslexia and Academic Success: Back To School Series

Share Article

With school just around the corner, the back to school period can be a worrying time for dyslexic students. In order to head into the next academic year with confidence, The Tutor Crowd and Dyslexia Way of Thinking have teamed up to launch a free webinar series for dyslexic students, parents and educators.

For a dyslexic, learning in the traditional classroom can be a really disheartening process.

The free 4 part webinar series, starting on August 30th, will focus on core issues that dyslexics experience in education and learning.

The webinars will be hosted by two dyslexics. Patrick Wilson (CEO of http://www.thetutorcrowd.com, dyslexia teacher and entrepreneur) and Steven Milner (published dyslexia author, and editor of http://dyslexiawayofthinking.co.uk ). Both presenters have first hand experience of the condition, and have learnt strategies and techniques to work with their dyslexia effectively.

Patrick, whose tutoring methodology has previously been feature in The Times and The Daily Mail said:

“For a dyslexic, learning in the traditional classroom can be a really disheartening process. However, if a student is taught to understand their dyslexia, they can learn to work with their dyslexia, and the potential for results are enormous. If any dyslexic student has ever been disappointed by their results after increasing their efforts, then this webinar series is for them.”

The webinar topics will include:

  •     Webinar 1: Understanding Dyslexia (differences in the way a dyslexic brain works, differences in memory, writing, problem solving and structuring).
  •     Webinar 2: Working effectively with dyslexia (reading, writing & memorisation techniques for dyslexics).
  •     Webinar 3: Dyslexic exam techniques (planning, modelling, paraphrasing, structuring).
  •     Webinar 4: Dyslexia for parents & teachers (synopsis of the key issues, psychology and stress of dyslexia).
