Hitchhiker's Guide to Dyslexia:
THE ROAD MAP
Welcome to the second video in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Dyslexia that we’re doing here at MindMap Studio.
Today we’re looking at the road map for the journey and some of the things that we’ll be looking as we go along.
If you imagine that right now I have a a big road map of where I think I’d like to go on this journey and I also have lots of little destinations that I’d like to check in on along the way so that we can explore various resources as we travel.
I’ve experienced dyslexia as a teeanger and I’m now the parent of teenagers with dyslexia. In addition to my own experience I now want to explore teenage dyslexia more thoroughly so that I can understand it more and help others navigate it and understands it too.
This video series is my way of visually sharing my journey.
We’ll be covering preparing for our journey, finding out more about dyslexia, identifying some famous dyslexic role models, the advantages and challenges of dyslexia and the various tools and strategies that are available to help deal with these challenges.
Our goal is to create a visual library of material for the parents of dyslexic teenagers. The hitchhiking approach means it may appear a little ad-hoc at first but it will become a comprehensive and hopefully very useful resource.
SIX main destinations
We’ll cover the basics of dyslexia and the signs to look out for and the various assessments that are available.
We’ll look at assessments in more detail and discover what happens in an assessment and what’s going on behind the scenes.
GET TO KNOW THE
2. ROLE MODELS
We’ll find some dyslexic role models and see what we can learn from them.
We’ll look at the challenges with memory for dyslexics and how to organise your thoughts and learning so that you can write great essays.
There’s some great literature out there and one book I found really helpful was the Dyslexic Advantage so I’ll share more on that and it is a real encouragement on the gift that dyslexics are to the world.
We’ll look at different online resources such as courses and documentaries and we’ll explore various learning strategies with a particular focus on mindmappig and keywords.
We’ll also look at the technology that is available to assist dyslexic teens and weigh up its pros and cons.
share the resources
We hope this is going to become a helpful and empowering resource for you and if you have friends that could benefit too then please share our videos with them.
