The Windward Way
Teachers Transforming Lives
All children deserve to be recognised for the type of learners they are and to receive the quality of teaching that allows them to unlock their full potential. The Windward Way – Teachers Transforming Lives reveals how, when teachers are taught how to apply the best scientific evidence on language development and learning, all children, including those with Dyslexia and other language based learning challenges, can most effectively learn to read and write, and become happy, confident and productive participators within society. First and foremost, teachers need to be given the tools to reach all children. We need different types of brains and many children with language based challenges are ‘big picture – out of the box thinkers’ of extraordinary intelligence. Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci and Richard Branson are just a few examples of people who have used their dyslexic brains to positively impact the world we live in.
