Creative Dyslexia Workshops
The Creative Dyslexia workshop informs what being dyslexic can mean in a practical and interactive way. I acknowledge both the challenges and strengths people with dyslexia can have and see’s it as a different way of learning, not a disability.
I carried out my first workshop in March 2018 with the Creative Mentoring Programme in Paisley with Impact Arts. Since then I have held workshops in primary schools across Scotland and England. I work for Impact Arts, a community Arts charity in Glasgow and as a part time swimming teacher so have a breath of experience working with children, including with additional learning needs and with disabilities. The Creative Dyslexia workshops are most suitable for children / young people, however I am looking to plan adult workshops in the future.
I have undertaken extensive interviews and research into dyslexia, and use my artwork and these workshops to break down the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding it. My work focuses on storytelling, sharing experiences and being positive about Dyslexia.
