This week I had an interesting conversation with R.S. Mellette, a scriptwriter and author with dyslexia. He was the script coordinator for Xena the Warrior Princess, Nutty Professor 2 and Blue Crush. Mellette has also worked and blogged for the film festival Dances With Films as well as the novelist collective, From The Write Angle, and he is on the board of the L.A. region of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. In this episode, we are going to explore how R.S. Mellette came to know about dyslexia and how it helped him in being a screenwriter and, later on, being an author. He’s just about to publish the first book of a series called Kiya and the Morian Treasure which actually takes him more than 20 years to publish.

Ash Voisine was a business and entrepreneurship graduate but when a teacher of her child admitted that they can’t help the child, she decided to homeschool her kids. She looked for other ways to teach with programs like the Orton-Gillingham system. She’s now finishing her master’s degree in special education. This week, we talked to Ash Voisine about how she found out she’s dyslexic when she was studying to be an Orton-Gillingham tutor for her children. She also talked about the IEP and the red tape parents may encounter when fighting for their child's rights at school. Listen to her story now.

Children with dyslexia often have brilliant and incredible stories to share in their heads but always struggle to get them out and put them into words. A lot of the time, their imagination and creativity go beyond what was required in the question and they get so overwhelmed halfway that they ended up leaving it unfinished. Going off-topic is a common occurrence and the lack of cohesiveness forces the teachers to mark it as failed. It’s in every exam in the world they ask students to “Write a Short Story”. It sounds easy but for a child with dyslexia, it’s not. We, dyslexics, have no shortage of mind-bending theories and hyper-realistic worlds to share but how to share it is the problem. How do you make sure you have a beginning, middle, and end in your story? How do you make sure your teachers get what you wanted to say? And most importantly, how do you finish the story on time?

This week, we had a lovely conversation with Katrina Cochrane, the head of education and policy for the British Dyslexia Association. Katrina has had a wide range of knowledge regarding dyslexia for the past few decades but we focused on what’s happening with dyslexia in the workplace. As dyspraxic herself, Katrina was exposed to the struggles and confusion of neurodiverse workers in the workplace. She later specialised in dyslexia teaching and became part of the British Dyslexia Association. In the UK, Katrina observed that dyslexia in the workplace had improved more than in schools in the last ten years. Companies are learning how to accommodate people with dyslexia as they understand that it can be a good investment in their companies. Listen to the podcast as Katrina also discussed what a workplace needs assessment is and how it is assessed.

This week, I have invited Lois Letchford, a returning guest here in Dyslexia Explored, to talk about her recently published research paper through the International Literacy Association titled “Moving beyond Decoding: Teaching Pronoun Resolution to Develop Reading Comprehension”. In her paper, Lois Letchford and her co-author, Timothy Rasinski, identified that less proficient readers like people with dyslexia often are not as proficient in resolving pronouns. It is another comprehension task that teachers often dismiss as the student being lazy or dumb. Lois shared with us how pronouns such as; he, she, they, it, etc., confuse people with dyslexia. They often find it difficult to remember which noun was the pronoun replacing. She also offered strategies on how we, as parents and teachers, can help our students overcome this challenge.

Have you tried studying another language? We all know it can be extremely hard to learn something you are not used to. Now, imagine what a child with dyslexia feels after moving to a country with a very different language. Learning a language is hard enough, but to learn another language while you are still learning to read with dyslexia is daunting. That is what our guest for today has experienced, when she and her family transferred to another country. Aimee Kyffin was not yet diagnosed with dyslexia when they moved to the Netherlands. Early on, she was having difficulty reading and understanding her lessons but people were just shrugging it off as they suspected it was just because she wasn’t used to the language. This week, I had a great conversation with Aimee Kyffin as she talked about her dyslexia story. She also shared a new technology they developed where children can learn in a multi-sensory way. It basically lets you use colour to visualise spelling. It’s a very interesting technology which they plan on publishing in 2022. Listen to the podcast and hear her story.

This week, I had an interesting conversation with Elizabeth Trudeau, a mother of a daughter with dyslexia. Elizabeth wants to share her passion, a project she just completed which initially started when she wanted to help her child understand her dyslexia. She noticed that her child responded greatly to stories about other professionals with dyslexia who have made it through school and life. Seeing that other children also responded well to these success stories, Elizabeth wrote and published a children’s story book about real life people with dyslexia. In this podcast, Elizabeth shared what she realised while writing and researching the book about the social and emotional aspect of dyslexia and what we, as parents, can do about it.

This week, I had a very interesting and musical conversation with Ruth Travers, the founder of Stave House. Ruth has developed a process for children to master music theory through visual and creative language. As we learnt from the previous episode, dyslexia is affecting children to learn and read music just as it is affecting them to read words. Through Ruth’s fun and engaging program, children use their imagination and creativity to make sense of what they are seeing in the music sheet. Listen to the episode and discover Ruth Travers’ story as she explains how her process helped her students.

This week, we invited children with dyslexia, parents and educators to ask them about their experiences with learning music. It surprises me that people are amazed when they hear that dyslexia might affect reading music when it definitely affects reading words. In this episode, we want to start a conversation about dyslexia and music because there aren’t many people who are talking about this. The group talked about the struggles they or their children have encountered and some of the techniques that helped them cope. Music educators shared some common challenges that children with learning differences can be tripped up with, when learning music. This discussion barely scratched the surface but hopefully this will spark a new wave of conversations about learning music in a different more dyslexia-friendly way.

We have a very fascinating story we’d like to share this week. It’s about Andrew Nehring who has a photographic memory, excellent auditory memory and dyslexia. It is a very interesting combination because people tend to correlate dyslexia with poor memory. Some of Andrew’s teachers didn’t believe he has dyslexia because he could relay what the teachers told him. In this episode of Dyslexia Explored, I talked to Andrew Nehring as he shared his dyslexia story and how playing dungeons and dragons as a child helped him write stories for his books. Andrew has written 2 science fiction novels while he was in college. Now, he’s going to publish his 3rd book “David Massie and the Quantum Flux” this July 2021.

Let’s listen to the story of Lois Letchford, a physical education teacher who became a reading specialist when she discovered her son has dyslexia. She’s written a book called “Reversed: A Memoir”, where she shares her son's story and her own - learning differences. The school diagnostician called her son the worst child he’s ever seen in 20 years of teaching. That fueled her and her son to look for ways to help him with his dyslexia. She’s passionate about transforming literacy instruction for the most vulnerable students. She believes that we can’t change the children but we can control what we teach.

Have you ever heard of the job title Head of Happiness? That’s exactly the job title of our guest for today. She’s a stand-up comedian who thought of bringing stand-up comedy into schools to help them with reading and writing. This week I had a very interesting conversation with Stephanie Davies, the founder of Laughology. Stephanie says that her misbehaviour in school was a direct result of her difficulties keeping up in class. Stephanie started her own business and practically invented a job that she’s happy doing. She also ran school initiatives that help children with learning differences. At the end of the podcast Stephanie shared some tips on happiness, so look out for that. Listen to her story now.

This week, I had a great conversation with Aarian Daniels, a mum who has written a book based on her daughter’s dyslexia struggles. Aarian found out about dyslexia when her youngest daughter was diagnosed and fought the school for her daughter's needs.

This week, I had a great conversation with Mike Guest, a dyslexic, who has been self-employed his whole life. We talked about the dynamic aspect of dyslexia. He’s an established photographer, who’s now moved into water photography. He compares the adaptability of dyslexia to surfing in the water. You have to go with the flow and adjust according to what nature throws at you. He recently posted a film that tackles mental health, dyslexia and immersion with nature.

This week, we had a great conversation with Cigdem Knebel, a mum who wrote stories for her child with dyslexia. She is now the owner of a publishing company that publishes decodable storybooks for children with dyslexia. It all started when she found out that her son had dyslexia. He was worried and stressed because his peers were reading advanced books while he was still stuck with “baby” books. She took it upon herself to write decodable storybooks for him. He enjoyed it and shared it with other children who had the same problem. She was encouraged to publish these books so that other children may access them. That’s how the Simple Words Books started.

This week we are going to talk about designing cars with dyslexia. I sat down with Matthew Head, a dyslexic car designer who started out as a mechanic. He looked for jobs that he thought he could undertake but got rejected for not having an engineering degree. So he went to university and got a Masters's in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. He is now a Senior Vehicle Design Engineer for a luxury car company. Matt’s story resonates with a lot of people.  Many dyslexics, because school got in the way, end up doing jobs relating to maintenance and repair when they really should be building and designing things.

We have a very special and mind-bending episode this week. It’s all about a man with dyslexia who worked 34 years as a driver for a newspaper company and recently published a book with himself as the main character. Let’s follow the story of Ed Calkins who had troubles with self-confidence all his life. As a hobby, he created fascinating stories with characters based on real-life people and shared them with his colleagues and friends. One of his friends is an author, Denise Unland, who decided to include Ed, as one of the characters in her trilogy. The character, Ed, ended up being a fan favourite that fans of the trilogy wanted to know more about his back story. Ed Calkins took on that challenge and wrote a novel based on the character with the same name. At first, Ed wasn’t confident about his story but after hearing positive feedback about the character, he was motivated to finish his novel. Listen to his story now.
