As always it starts with a parent discovering their child is dyslexic and realizing they need to do something about it because no one else is going to.

All evidence points out that Thomas Edison might be dyslexic. We know this from the way he wrote and his struggles in his early years of reading. He was expelled from school but mother soften the blow and did everything she can to help young Thomas. In our usual parent coffee time live on Facebook, we talked about the life of Thomas and what can we learn from him. Thomas was regarded as one of the most important inventors in history but based on his early childhood he was regarded as a failure. Let's have a listen to how he managed to do all these things.

We continue on with our Parent coffee time live on Facebook with parents of dyslexia. This time we talk about the tendency of students to pursue courses that lean towards their M-strengths or Material Reasoning.  In our case, a lot of the BulletMap Academy students want to take up Biology as a degree. One particular student was quite pleased that she could choose Biology as a subject. However, she was discouraged when her teacher assigned them to read 10 pages of text from a book within a short span of time. This goes to show that without a strategy to deal with the huge amount of reading, a dyslexic student could be thrown off course from their dream.  Links you might want to check: Bulletmap Academy Page: https://bulletmapacademy.com Doodle Club: https://bulletmapacademy.com/doodle/ BulletMap Academy Workshop: https://bulletmapacademy.com/workshop/ BulletMap Academy Blogs: https://bulletmapacademy.com/blogs/ Enroll in BulletMap Academy: https://bulletmapacademy.com/sales-page/#price Show notes: https://bulletmapacademy.com/56/
We continue on talking about the Dyslexic Advantage Chapter 6 part 3 (p.56-59). This time we talk about Material reasoning and how it affects dyslexics when learning procedural processes like cooking. Teaching a dyslexic child how to cook is a challenge when you just enumerate to them the steps of the recipe. But what if you teach them to cook using their ‘Material reasoning strengths’?.  Links you might want to check: The Dyslexic Advantage: https://www.amazon.com/Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-Hidden-Potential-ebook/dp/B0052RHC2K/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=dyslexic+advantage&qid=1548185422&s=Books&sr=1-1  The Dyslexic Advantage on audible: https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Audiobook/B005HJ5ZC2  The dyslexic advantage on scribd: https://www.scribd.com/audiobook/281691724/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-the-Hidden-Potential-of-the-Dyslexic-Brain  The Dyslexic Advantage website: https://www.dyslexicadvantage.org/  Bulletmap Academy Page: https://bulletmapacademy.com BulletMap Academy Workshop: https://bulletmapacademy.com/workshop/ BulletMap Academy Blogs: https://bulletmapacademy.com/blogs/ Enroll in BulletMap Academy: https://bulletmapacademy.com/sales-page/#price Show notes: https://bulletmapacademy.com/55/
In this episode, we are going to do another part of the Dyslexic Advantage book club with another 4 pages of the book together with our parents at the parent coffee time. We've been talking about the strength of dyslexia in 3D reasoning and how often people with dyslexia trade-off 2D thinking with 3D thinking. Now we are going to talk about the practical implications of having a 3D brain in the real world.  Links you might want to check: The Dyslexic Advantage: https://www.amazon.com/Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-Hidden-Potential-ebook/dp/B0052RHC2K/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=dyslexic+advantage&qid=1548185422&s=Books&sr=1-1  The Dyslexic Advantage on audible: https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Audiobook/B005HJ5ZC2  The dyslexic advantage on scribd: https://www.scribd.com/audiobook/281691724/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-the-Hidden-Potential-of-the-Dyslexic-Brain   The Dyslexic Advantage website: https://www.dyslexicadvantage.org/ Bulletmap Academy Page: https://bulletmapacademy.com BulletMap Academy Workshop: https://bulletmapacademy.com/workshop/ BulletMap Academy Blogs: https://bulletmapacademy.com/blogs/ Enroll into BulletMap Academy: https://bulletmapacademy.com/sales-page/#price Show notes: https://bulletmapacademy.com/54/
We continue on talking about the Dyslexic Advantage Chapter 6 part 1 (p.51-53). It has been a while now since we discussed a chapter of the book. Now we have dyslexic parents to help us and they can also share their thoughts with regards to the text. This time we talk about how dyslexia thinking often has stronger 3D than 2D reasoning and how it can create a drawback on school but a big advantage in the workplace.  Links you might want to check:  The Dyslexic Advantage: https://www.amazon.com/Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-Hidden-Potential-ebook/dp/B0052RHC2K/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=dyslexic+advantage&qid=1548185422&s=Books&sr=1-1  The Dyslexic Advantage on audible: https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Audiobook/B005HJ5ZC2  The dyslexic advantage on scribd: https://www.scribd.com/audiobook/281691724/The-Dyslexic-Advantage-Unlocking-the-Hidden-Potential-of-the-Dyslexic-Brain  The Iggy Peck Architect: https://www.amazon.com/Iggy-Peck-Architect-Andrea-Beaty/dp/081091106X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3GSIFI3JGT57H&dchild=1&keywords=iggy+peck+architect&qid=1589480258&sprefix=iggy+%2Caps%2C339&sr=8-1  The Dyslexic Advantage website: https://www.dyslexicadvantage.org/  Bulletmap Academy Page: https://bulletmapacademy.com BulletMap Academy Workshop: https://bulletmapacademy.com/workshop/ BulletMap Academy Blogs: https://bulletmapacademy.com/blogs/ Enroll in BulletMap Academy: https://bulletmapacademy.com/sales-page/#price Show notes: https://bulletmapacademy.com/53/
We are meeting with parents again in our usual parents' coffee time via Zoom. This time, we discuss what I call the 5 gears of dyslexia; Reading, Writing, Remembering, Results, and Organization. We talked about how hard it is to move from gear to gear because of dyslexia restricting their movements. We also talked about students getting stuck in a gear that ends up using most of their energy and intelligence to cope with other functions.  Links you might want to check: Bulletmap Academy Page: https://bulletmapacademy.com BulletMap Academy Workshop: https://bulletmapacademy.com/workshop/ BulletMap Academy Blogs: https://bulletmapacademy.com/blogs/ Enroll in BulletMap Academy: https://bulletmapacademy.com/sales-page/#price Show notes: https://bulletmapacademy.com/52/
With the current situation right now due to COVID- 19, a lot of our students are thrust into new territory. Schools are now looking for other ways to continue the education of our students even if they are stuck at home. However, children with dyslexia are having a hard time adjusting to remote schooling. We asked parents from the UK and the US via Zoom, who are homeschooling, to share some tips and tricks on how to manage the positive and negative effects of the transition.
