One of the highlights of supporting the learning of the children with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties in the community of Mallorca is seeing the students grow. By guiding them to understand their own strengths and weaknesses it enables them to slowly take greater risks and more responsibility for their own development; discovering how they learn and where they can make improvements towards independence and personal fulfilment. The resulting confidence helps to develop their self-efficacy and self-esteem and prevent the downward spiral that can grow without support and guidance. It can be heart-breaking watching a child who has a wealth of talents struggle due to a learning difference! If you feel your child is floundering at school and needs a boost to instil a ‘can-do’ attitude, please contact Anita at www.dysl3xia.com or call 682593379.
