Our methods are based on the premise that two types of thinkers exist: those who think in 'words' and those who think in 'pictures'. Since almost all learning environments are geared exclusively to 'word' (sound based, linear sequential) thinkers, the 'picture'(visual based, spatial kinesthetic) thinkers are left to struggle through as best they can. As a consequence it is these diverse, and frequently talented, visual-spatial learners that often end up being labeled 'learning disabled'.

Dyslexics are not 'learning disabled'. It is the lack of awareness and understanding of a diverse learning style that disables their learning process.

Our Society addresses the cause, not the symptoms of dyslexia - the 'whole' picture, rather than part of it - and that's what makes us unique and different from other established methods.  We aim to bring about small, but vital changes in our education system to enable all children to have the cognitive opportunity they deserve.

Professional Development Day (Part 1)   1.5 hours: provides the theory, the dynamics, and an overview of the methods that can reach the source of the learning challenges, to correct them, rather than treat the symptoms. It also outlines strategies which have been developed to teach basic literacy skills in Kindergarten to Grade 3 classes and thereby prevent the difficulties from arising.   Professional Development Day (Part 2)   1 hour: offers a fun, hands-on experience of giving words 3D meaning! True knowledge is experience, and a fun experience is memorable.
