HELP FOR DYSLEXICS
One of the most damaging impacts on a dyslexic student’s progress can be an impression that they are too dumb to learn. The message being brought by Hawke’s Bay mobile learning clinic Mpowered is that these kids are not dumb, they learn differently. Mpowered founder Helen Wildbore, herself dyslexic, has developed a learning system that shows the children they are not stupid. ‘‘We’re creative and innovative and we see relationships and patterns in things,’’ Wildbore said. The Baybased programme will be heading to Wairarapa next term. A course costs $2000 and delivered in four weeks over two terms.
