Dyslexics are extremely unique, talented and creative people. If properly assessed, remediated and counseled they can be contributing citizens. The dyslexic has stronger ability to analyse complex ideas. They need love, trust, understanding and help from parents and teachers.
Apart from the teachers who will ensure a fair learning ground, the Psychologists play an important role by correctly diagnosing difficulties, improvising ‘Individual Education Programmes’ (IEP) and provide Counseling for each child. The Special Educators will follow the IEP, provide Remedial Education Services and work towards integrating the child in the Mainstream, Famous People with Dyslexia are Walt Disney, Leonardo Da Vinci, Einstein, Tom Cruise, Winston Churchill etc.
This workshop is an extension of our vision to be the guiding light in the lives of children with Dyslexia and equip them and those responsible for their upbringing. We endeavor to help Teachers and School Administrators to help them excel in the main stream along with all others.
The workshops will be organized at Hotel LB, Mount Road extn., Nagpur from 9AM to 5PM on the three days. For participation details, Mr. Chauhan may be contacted on 9226989792.
