“Dyslexia is not a disability, it’s a thinking style,” Rene Cristiane, a Davis Dyslexia facilitator, who discussed the difference during a Dyslexia Awareness Programme at Dios Los Ninos, a private school in Wilgeheuwel on 12 October.

“We’re celebrating Dyslexia Awareness Month and the successful union between the school and me, the Davis Dyslexia facilitator. We’ve had such successful relationship, it deserves to be celebrated,” said Cristiane, who is also a teacher at the school.

She added that the children celebrated their dyslexia and created awareness.

“Davis is a correction programme for dyslexics. We go through the whole alphabet and help the children to read. It is more to adapt them to their strongest suit and thinking style,” Cristiane explained.

Following the awareness programme, children dressed up according to their favourite character books and the best dressed walked away with awesome prizes.
