Join us this week as we discuss determination and dyslexia with Abi Elphinstone, the author of The Dream Snatcher Series and The Unmapped Chronicles.

Do you consider yourself a visual thinker? When Temple was interviewing people about how they think, she was shocked to know that some people are not thinking in pictures. She thought everybody thinks in pictures. I got the honour to talk to Temple Grandin, who is an autistic author, professor, inventor, and many more. She did not talk until she was 3 years old. Fortunately, she had a speech therapist early. She was bullied for being weird but she loved flying things like airplanes and kites. Today Temple is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and half of the cattle in the US are handled in facilities that Temple designed. She even has an Emmy Award-winning movie about her life produced by HBO and was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2016. In this podcast, Temple shared how she came up with the idea of writing the book Visual Thinking during the lockdown. She also shared her concern about the diminishing high-end trade jobs in the United States because of the change in the Education system.

If you’ve ever tried teaching your child to read, you’ll know that it's not as easy as it looks, especially for a child with a learning difference. I had a great conversation with Nora Chahbazi, the founder of Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction or EBLI. She has been training and coaching teachers, parents, and educators for over 20 years to help them teach students how to read. Nora shares her experience of how EBLI started and what made her pursue the field. Her daughter was having trouble reading but the school didn’t think it was anything unusual. She began researching ways to help her child and found a revolutionary book that really made a difference for her child. Shortly after, Nora founded EBLI and now, they have trained thousands of teachers from around the world. Nora also sheds light on the different approaches to teaching reading, like balance literacy and phonics-based, and where her approach falls into the mix. Check out the video podcast on Youtube.

Salvesen Mindroom Centre or SMC has been working with dyslexia and neurodiversity for over 21 years and is continuously supporting people living with learning differences. Alan Thornburrow disengaged from school at 16. He struggled to find his place in the world until he managed to find a career in finance.

Alan has spent 20 years advocating for people that might see themselves as ‘other’ in the world. Alan’s job is to influence decision-makers, policymakers and funders into making the right decisions on inclusion and diversity in schools, the workplace and society more generally.
