Why the long silence? What happened?

What happened???

I have to apologize for a very long absence, partially because I have been building a new platform, Focus First, to offer courses online and also for health reasons.

I had to undergo some chemo- and immunotherapy (still happening once a month for five more months) – but non-Hodgkins Lymphoma is apparently an easy cancer to treat.

I need a mission to focus on – so here I am! I have decided to upload free videos to dyslexia-related questions I have had in the meantime.

I also want to start an evening class for dyslexic adults – here in Mosman, once a week. It’s going to be a pilot program and I am looking for about five guinea pigs. Anyone up for it?

Please contact me, if you are interested or have questions: 0402 686 327 or hoi.barbara1@gmail.com.

And here is the first video, as promised:

Why many dyslexic children reverse letters and numbers

https://youtu.be/s077UzWmcL0

I have been asked some questions.

Questions that you may also want answers for, like I wanted when I had no idea why my son Marcus was struggling,

No idea why he was reversing letters and numbers,

Why his handwriting was so poor and never seemed to be in a straight line,

Why he could remember one day, but not the next day,

Why he couldn’t remember names,

And I have decided to make a video library of these answers.

The first video above talks about the b/d or p/q reversal, which many dyslexics are prone to do.

Not all, and often only in early Primary School years.

It explains the thinking style that leads to the confusion and adds up to frustration.

Not your usual library, but an interactive one –  free for everyone.

Interactive, because I would like to hear your experiences, how you have overcome obstacles around your child’s learning, your tips and your questions.

I’d like to get your wisdom out there too, so we can create a community, where we all can learn from one another.

Please join the FOCUS FIRST CLOSED GROUP on facebook

So we are all on the same page, where I upload many more of these short videos and can’t wait for you to join me, share and interact. The next Video will be explaining the difference between the left and right hemisphere of the brain and why dyslexics work dominantly from the right side.

I am so passionate to spread this message – It’s free and I look forward to seeing you there.
