Guest Speaker!!!  

Monday, 16 February 2009

Today, we have our first guest writer on sally’s world, my daughter Robyn.

As you know Trojan (http://trojansgallery.blogspot.com/) and I have been doing video blogs for a while, yesterday we talked about dyslexia with Robyn, who was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was seven years old. She was a natural, and I was very proud of how well she explained the ways in which her dyslexia affects her, and how she overcomes it.

“Hi, I’m Robyn, I’m sally’s daughter, my teachers told me I had dyslexia six years ago, I work really hard and read a lot to help me cope and keep up with my school work. Last night Mummy and Uncle Trojan asked me lots of questions about how I feel and how I cope, and if anyone has been horrible about my dyslexia. We videoed it so you can see us talking about it. I hope it will help other people who are finding it hard to cope. Mum says if you have any questions you can e-mail me to ask me on sally@heavensspecialchild.co.uk there are some really good websites too the British Dyslexia Society has lots of information it is on http://www.bdadyslexia.org.uk/ and Dyslexia Learning Success is on http://causesofdyslexia.com/ this is an excellent site and gives you lots of ideas. Please watch our video and tell us what you think. I liked doing it, I was a bit shy at first, but was okay when I got talking, and I want to help other people. Bye, love Robyn xxxxxx.”


So take a look and see for yourself, I think we have a star in the making.
