Neurodiversity Week - Dyslexia Focus

Our focus for Neurodiversity Week has been dyslexia. We read Aaron Slater, Illustrator by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts: and discussed what it's like to have dyslexia.

We talked about people we know and famous people who have dyslexia and how they have found ways to overcome challenges they face. For example because Aaron found it difficult to read and write when he had to share a story with his class he drew his story instead.

We also took part in an activity where we wrote in different ways to experience what it might have been like for Aaron if he was writing his story with words.

We had some great discussions and thought a lot about how Aaron kept going and found a way to use the things he was good at to help him.
