Dyslexia Awareness week 2019
Today, we support Dyslexia Awareness Week 2019 with a short post explaining why understanding our strengths is key to unlocking success. At the B.I.T.T. Services Specialist Learning Support team we work with individuals with Dyslexia and other Learning Differences on a daily basis and recognise the difficulties that individuals often encounter whilst studying, at work or with family life.
Getting individuals to recognise their strengths and utilise these better is fundamental in building confidence and success. This is often difficult as individuals, presenting with Dyslexia or other Learning Difference, regularly lack confidence and suffer from low ‘self-esteem’ because they have been made to feel that their way of doing things is ‘wrong’ or ‘not academic’.
At BITTS we work to empower and support individuals to achieve success. We help individuals to identify and focus on their strengths. We teach simple strategies that don’t overwhelm and patronize our clients, which is often why they come to us needing support as often they’ve been made to feel inferior and inadequate for thinking and doing things differently.
As a disability confident organisation we are proud to support Dyslexia Awareness Week 2019. If you, or someone you know, needs support and guidance on dyslexia or any other learning difference then please reach out to us.
