Feedback Poll

Hey all,

I’ve been doing some thinking about the blog lately. Before I do anything drastic to shake things up, I wanted the opinions of my readers first.

I was thinking of adding some of my photography, some bits and pieces about music I like and just general bits and pieces that interest me. I was hoping by adding more diversity to the page it might pull in more readers. However, I don’t want to isolate my current readers by changing the blogs focus to something completely off the wall.

Please vote in the poll on the right hand side of the page and let me know what you think. You can also leave comments below. ——>

Thank you x

Dyspraxia and Me: Is it funny that I cannot swim?

Is it funny that I cannot swim?
And struggle trying to keep trim?
My problems with coordination,
Make any sport a sheer frustration.

Is it funny that I can’t ride a bike?
That my balance skills went out on strike?
So when I climbed a tree or wall,
I was sure that I would always fall.

Dyslexia Awareness Month: My Top 5 Books

I never really enjoyed reading when my friends at school started chomping through them. I never associated ‘book’ with ‘pleasure’ like my best friend at school who loved her Jane Austen books after watching the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It took me until I was 15 or 16 when I discovered Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at the library in school that I began to understand why people like reading a book. Now I have hundreds of them! I haven’t read them all mind you! A lot of them have been used for university studies and I will have only read a specific section of the book.

Here are a section of books that I have really enjoyed! Some of them I have read more than once!!! These books are perhaps aimed more towards teenage and adult audiences, so if you’re looking for books for your dyslexic kids to read, they won’t be suitable on the whole.  Read the rest of this entry

Dyslexia and Me: Dyslexia at Work

The one thing you will see me campaigning for is support for adults with dyslexia. There are so many charities, groups and parent networks that are pushing for change in schools, but there aren’t enough people (in my opinion) pushing for change in the way adults with dyslexia are treated. We’re kind of left to get on with it! This really needs to change, especially when so many people with dyslexia are unemployed or struggle to find work.  Read the rest of this entry
