Welcome to this weeks Throw Starfish. We have Shawn Brown as our guest this week. We were inspired to include Dyslexia as part of our brain series, in part by a TED Talk by Shawn about Neuro Diversity, but also because Jonny is Dyslexic, Ruth wonders if (ok Shawn suspects) that Ruth has Dyslexia, and Pennie struggles getting letters in the correct order when writing on a Flip Chart / White Board.
We discover all the learning differences attribute to Dyslexia – it’s not only reading and reading writing – it also includes skills like numeracy, memory, memory and sequencing.
Here are the links we mention in the show,

Until next time,
