Overview

This module examines the unique traits that have helped some of the world's best-known dyslexic individuals rise to success. From developing determination and self-esteem, to seeking the right kind of help and support, this module identifies how all dyslexic individuals can develop and use these traits to unlock their own potential.

This programme runs alongside, but is not identical to, the book written by the BDA Vice President, Margaret Malpas MBE; “Self Fulfilment with Dyslexia: A Blueprint to Success”. 

The core characteristics of successful dyslexic adults are, of course, the same. The sections on how to develop the characteristics are very similar but are more concisely described here than in the book, and activities have been included that cannot easily be done in a book format. The case studies are different; through eLearning weblinks can be used so you can actually see and hear other adults through video.
