Pat Howe

Learning difficulties and disabilities IE
As a dyslexic, who didn't learn to read or write until my late 20s, I developed a solution that I believe is game changing for people with reading and writing problems. My first student was my daughter, Nichol, who also had severe dyslexia. This year, Nichol was awarded a PhD in micro-molecular physics. I developed my dyslexia solution in one of Ireland's top colleges, Dublin City University. It is now being used extensively in Youth Reach programmes and in Prisons. It is predicated on two key attributes of dyslexia. People with dyslexia have weak short-term or working memory. They also have strong visual skills - they think in pictures or images. My solution teaches and bolsters short-term memory and harnesses visual skills through colour-coded phonetics.
