Bell House is a charity that supports wider education with a particular focus on dyslexia support. On Tuesday, March 27th from 7-9pm, Bell House will host a talk that will give an entirely positive, and very personal, view of dyslexia and how to make the most of the funkiness that it brings our lives.
This talk will cover:
- A range of easy, low-tech tools that help dyslexic children to organise their ideas.
- How rhythm can support attention, memory, language, music practice, and typing.
- Techniques for supporting learning in the classroom and at home.
Rhythm is a very important part of skill development in all aspects of life, but in developing self-expression and self-regulation, rhythm has a special role to play in drama, music, dance and sport.
This is an epic journey of being lost and then found. The greatest gift we can give our children with dyslexia is to support their journey as they find themselves, and become extraordinary.
About the speaker:
Marion began her career as a professional performing musician, but quickly became fascinated by the way that children with learning difficulties were drawn to classical music. She was appointed to the part-time role of SENCo at an independent school in Bedford and here, she discovered an incredible array of manifestations of dyslexia, as well as the extraordinary creativity of the pupils.
Now, Marion supports local children with dyslexia and provides training in schools via Rhythm for Reading (www.rhythmforreading.com). The programme achieves an average gain of twenty months in reading comprehension after ten weekly sessions of ten minutes.
