Neil MacKay was previously a Senior Teacher/Special Educational Needs in a large secondary school in North Wales. He is now an independent consultant and trainer. He originated the phrase and concept "Dyslexia Friendly Schools" in a serious attempt to change the way young people with dyslexia are taught within education.
"Taking the Hell out of Homework" and "Removing Dyslexia as a Barrier to Education" are two books written by Neil, who introduced the concept of "Dyslexia Friendly Schools"
During this morning Neil will open up the secrets of success - how to go about revising and studying for exams, and how to take the stress out of homework.
These "hidden" skills anyone can learn could make all the difference!
Excellent insights also for teachers.
