Weekly Roundup: Multi-Sensory Learning & Nobel Prize Winners

What Is Multi-Sensory Learning?

The topic of multi-sensory learning is always a popular one as it is all about teaching your brain new relationships. By using all your senses to learn you can build up more or alternative neural connections to enabling faster recollection and memorisation, which will help you take more control over your learning difficulty. It is just quite simply a great way to keep your brain in good health and exercise those parts that don’t always get to work out in your normal day.

We at Dybuster use multi-sensory learning in our software for dyslexia and dyscalculia using learning games that associate letters and numbers with shapes, colours, and musical tones to allow students to improve reading and spelling skills.

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017

This week was the UK’s Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017. It ran from last Monday 2nd October until today, Sunday 8th October 2017 with World Dyslexia Day on Thursday 5th October. The theme for the week was Positive about Dyslexia, it was great to see so much positivity spread over the internet as with such learning difficulties is all too easy to focus on the negatives. We saw the actor Charley Boorman share his refreshing personal experiences of dyslexia and how he believes in the truly positive aspects of the disability.
