It was very exciting to finally launch Discovering Dyslexia – my dyslexia information kit to the world. The kit is a how-to guide for everybody and anybody who has ever wondered about dyslexia or is affected by dyslexia in some way. There are examples of what dyslexia feels and looks like. There are a huge variety of solutions that are explored and demonstrated. It is very hands on with many simulations and a variety of page types and colours with which the reader can engage and explore issues further. It even has a ruler and highlighters to help with word building and understanding.

The book is available in the online shop or by emailing me directly. The cost of the folder is $175.

The folder is made up of 10 chapters that explore dyslexia historically, as well as educationally. There are chapters that immerse the reader in an experience of feeling what dyslexia is like and there are also chapters that recreate what dyslexia looks like for some people. It does not proport that it covers every type of dyslexia, but what it does is try to capture what it feels like to have dyslexia and have to participate in our everyday world.

  The Discovering DisAbility and Diversity program is a disability awareness program that is based around unique hands-on experiential activities. It is a mobile inclusive education experience that allows participants to experience a taste of disability and then create a response and solutions to that experience. Presented by a person with lived expert experience.It was developed and designed by Sharon Boyce, and it promotes the active discovery of disability and diversity through various hands-on activities. It has been running for the past fifteen years and aims at creating real understanding of key disability areas, both the physical and the hidden areas. It links experience to real life and encourages participants, whether children or adults, to make adjustments to their lives once they have a real understanding of disability. The program allows children and adults to experience disability and diversity in their own environment. We bring the program to you. This encourages tolerance and resilience and also lessens bullying.
