About the Event

Six weekly two-hour sessions, 7:00 — 9:00 p.m. Auckland time from 19th January — 23rd February.

The   discovery that your child has a learning difficulty can be a frightening, disorientating experience. Many parents worry that, although they feel they understand their child, they don’t feel they understand his dyslexia. Just as the dyslexic child is left with feelings of inadequacy after every class test, so his caring, dedicated parents are left feeling ineffectual when they sit down to help him with his homework.

Yet this need not be the end of the story. The "Gift of Dyslexia" Davis methods afford unique insights into how dyslexics think, and how they can learn. When key principles of the dyslexic learning style are understood and mastered, supporting your child's learning can start to be effective, stress-free, and fun for both of you.

These six weekly practical sessions, devised by dyslexia author Richard Whitehead and endorsed by Ronald Davis, are the journey that will make this happen. As a Davis Dyslexia Specialist, former secondary school Special Educational Needs Coordinator, and creator and presenter  of courses for parents, Richard has widespread experience both with the classical Davis approach and with experimental approaches to learning  for picture-thinkers.

This course will be presented by Rachel Barwell of Master Dyslexia in Kāpiti Coast, New Zealand. Rachel is a licensed and certified Davis Dyslexia Correction Facilitator and was personally trained by Richard Whitehead to present this course.
