Emma and Bill’s Amazing talk about Dyslexia:
A Workshop for Students and Teachers
1 Hour Workshop
To book this workshop please contact Bill Hansberry
This 1-hour workshop was first run with one of the wonderful students Bill works with. Emma wanted to be able to communicate to her classmates what Dyslexia is and the different ways it can affect students at school. Most importantly, Em wanted her peers to know that having Dyslexia doesn’t mean that you are dumb!
So Em and Bill put their heads down and planned a workshop and presented it together to Em's year 5 class. It was a hit and Em's dad said that Em walked taller afterward. What a wonderful outcome for a young person!
Since then, Bill has delivered this same workshop with other students in other classrooms with a similar result – more understanding about dyslexia! Teachers also comment that they learn a lot from this session.
"A wealth of knowledge - fantastic!"
