About this Event

Children with dyslexia often find their minds overloaded with thoughts and concerns that stop them from being able to do their work.

Endlessly talking in circles doesn’t help dyslexics much. They need to get their thoughts out, to see them and organize them visually.

If you don’t have a way to deal with this, it can build up and cause a lot of unnecessary stress, anxiety and arguments.

You need to learn a simple technique that will help you defuse the stress that comes from dyslexia and schoolwork. We’ve developed a little drawing exercise we use in our online tutoring, and want to teach you how to do it with your child.

In this limited one-hour and a half online workshop, you and your child will learn how to brainstorm ideas and organize them visually. It’s a form of mind mapping called a ‘Bulletmap’. It’s live and interactive on Zoom with other families. I’ll be teaching you how to brainstorm with a Bulletmap.

The workshop is ideal for both adults and children. You can come on your own, or bring the whole family with one ticket (free).

This training normally costs £7 a person, but it’s being offered by Dyslexia Scotland for free. Space is limited to 30 tickets. 1 ticket per household whether you’re coming solo or as a group.

This is one of the most useful and versatile tools for parents schooling children at home. Once you know it, you can help them:

  • Plan a fun weekend!
  • Plan their day.
  • Plan the week ahead.
  • Plan a school project.

The result? Parents and children love it. No more Sunday night arguments! A happier child who appreciates how you helped them cut through the overwhelm and confusion.

I promise you will love it.

This workshop is hosted by BulletMap Academy, in partnership with Dyslexia Scotland South East.
