Winter is coming … It’s time to cuddle up with stories and let your the imagination run wild.
Exciting, funny, disturbing, romantic and sometimes sad … For hundreds of years, stories have provided entertainment for all age groups. Stories are of great importance in the development of our children as they not only arouse emotions but also allow us to access empathy. We put together a collection of exciting links, events and get you thinking about what reading aloud could do for you and your children.
Last week we were part of a very exciting workshop in Manchester, hosted by Roger Broadbent from the Dyslexia Institute UK. The workshop was full of exciting ideas on how to help people who struggle with dyslexia in the Greater Manchester area and beyond. Dybuster was invited to the event to talk about our software Calcularis, software aimed at challenging the difficulties that come with dyscalculia and mathematical anxieties. We spoke about the lesser-known learning difficulty dyscalculia, the problems that come with it in everyday life and how Calcularis can be used to help overcome it.
Last week we were in Manchester at Improving Lives: Autism and Learning Difficulties, a conference by Open Forum Events. It was a true eye-opener and gave us a true understanding of current thinking on the topics from a huge list of expert speakers who have an incredible amount of first-hand experience and knowledge. Not only were there many professionals at the event, but people also shared their amazing and inspiring success stories that showed us how it can be made possible and what needs to be done for a better future of neurodiversity. In this article we have highlighted some of the talks from the event, it was difficult to choose, as the day was crammed with incredible presentations.
