“If I ever hear anyone say you've got a learning difficulty, straightaway you need to change that message, because…the messages we tell children matter, especially at a young age. So…you don't have learning difficulties, you have learning differences…this is a superpower not something to be sort of negative.”
From dyslexia assessments, to exams and lateral thinking, this episode explores the challenges and advantages of having a learning difference. Jamie and Danny discuss their personal journeys with dyslexia in the education system and workplace and how they have harnessed the superpower of dyslexia. They answer questions from students at the University Technical College Sheffield and offer some practical tips and advice to overcome the challenges often faced in an educational setting.
