Our approach to the emerging global reality…

Considering the current local/global pace of change and recognizing that there are increasingly fewer secure jobs, businesses, and/or markets, we believe that the best way to prepare one and all for the future is to enhance and accelerate the way we think, learn, understand and express what we know and what we want to say so that we are effectively prepared for the future, regardless of its permutations.

  • Dyslexia and sight: the wider view    (Mon 25 of May, 2015)
    There is widespread belief in the scientific community that dyslexia, which affects around 375,000 UK children and has a lifelong impact on learning, is not caused by sight problems. However, many practitioners and professional bodies offer dyslexic children eye treatments and routine eye checks to ensure glasses are offered if necessary and then that no further testing is needed. A new study, led by the universities of Bristol and Newcastle, which analysed the eye test results of 5,822 children found that the majority of the dyslexic children had perfect vision.

  • The Girl Who Taught Me to Spell the Word 'Love'    (Tue 19 of May, 2015)
    In my 49 years on this planet, I have had the chance to meet some amazing people and make a lot of good friends. Some have lasted beyond time and circumstance, while others have ended naturally after school, or a move or job change. A few ended painfully. But there is one friend whose effect on me was so profound that I think of her often. Carol and I were in the same afternoon kindergarten class. She was my ideal of what a girl should look and be like. Her long, brown hair hung down to her waist, and she possessed the all-American face I longed for myself. She had the ability to make friends easily and always managed to look neat and pretty. If Carol was a polished pearl, I was a diamond in the rough. I couldn't stay clean if I was kept under glass. My hair never looked right, no mat...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.
  • Examination of the double-deficit hypothesis with adolescents and young adults with dyslexia.    (Fri 15 of May, 2015)
    Authors: Nelson JM Abstract The double-deficit hypothesis (DDH) of the developmental dyslexias (Wolf and Bowers, Journal of Educational Psychology, 91, 415-438, 1999) was investigated with 149 adolescents and young adults (age range = 16 to 24 years) with dyslexia. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated that a two-factor model with separate naming speed (NS) and phonological awareness (PA) constructs was superior to a one-factor model, supporting the assumption within the DDH that NS is a source of reading dysfunction separable from PA. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses resulted in findings that were only partially supportive of the DDH. NS was predictive of word reading, spelling, and reading fluency beyond PA and verbal intellectual ability, but not pseudoword readin...
