One in 10 people in Ireland have Dyslexia.
Many notable names in society – Richard Branson, Brendan O’Carroll, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Jamie Oliver, Agatha Christie, W.B. Yeats – have/had Dyslexia.
This proves that whether a person is diagnosed as a ‘slow’ learner, reader or speller, the world can be their oyster if they are given the proper encouragement to believe in and develop their innate abilities.
This seminar will demonstrate how Dyslexia can and should be managed in both the classroom and the workplace and, Shannon CEO, Connor Flanagan from Atlantic Aviation Group, will share his story on how he overcame and managed Dyslexia to attain his life goals.
