Kent libraries dyslexia awareness workshop

September 10, 2010 · Filed Under Dyslexia 

Today I ran 3 workshops throughout the day for Kent Libraries it was great to see open-minded people wanting to help dyslexic people who coming to their libraries.  I forget how tiring it is to just talk all day.

    Hi, John. It was good to meet you in Dover today and get your perspective on things. I’ll be feeding your points back to my colleagues in Tonbridge.

    One thing I did think about was a talking barcode reader that can describe an item with speech using each item’s unique barcode number. Sadly for me it’s already been thought of (for blind people) – there goes my first million! – but I’ll suggest that we look into getting some.

    Anyway, all the best,
    Martin (the guy with the stick; I don’t need it now!)

    I grew up in Kent during the 80s and even though I was diagnosed with Dyspraxia it made no difference at school as even the teachers didn’t understand or acknowledge any form of dyslexia at that time. It’s nice to know someone is raising awareness there these days, keep up the good work.

    After a spell in a homeless hostel later in my teens I turned my life around by becoming a successful entrepreneur. I have now written a book about it called “How To Be Lucky” and I blog about my book and entrepreneurship at mattkinsella.com
