Guest speaking at an Immersive Theatre Installation

Our audience found it both fascinating and informative, and it was great to have it presented by someone who is dyslexic themselves. The children in the audience were thoroughly entertained, but also reassured as to how normal they are. They were much buoyed up by hearing of dyslexic strengths and skills.

Throughout all of my dyslexia teaching education and professional experience, I had never had the opportunity to be in such a dyslexia-friendly environment. This immersion and opportunity for frank discussion in a safe space about how it feels to be dyslexic was invaluable, and I want more teachers to experience this too!
