helping dyslexic adults and children utilise their gift
Dyslexia Correction at a Beach-side Retreat
Dyslexia Retreat @ 11/9-13 Hutton Road, The Entrance North:
A Dyslexia Correction Program takes 30 hours - usually over a period of five days, six hours a day. You drive to a facilitator early in the morning to beat the rush hour and pick up the child around 3 pm.
What if you woke up with the sun rising over the ocean just outside the window, went for a walk or swim in the ocean in front of your room, hope to catch a glimpse of a dolphin or a whale, then eat a wonderful healthy breakfast and start the program. With as many breaks as you need, the program takes as long as it takes. But I promise you that by the time you leave on Friday afternoon, you will be different - you and your child.
I have seen parents in tears when their child can read a page or a chapter of 'Harry Potter' or any other book, when they couldn't previously read a line - or understand what they read... and that, after only 5 days. Every child is different, every program is different and we all achieve what we put our minds to. Often adult dyslexics arrive and are able to fill in the gaps of what they have missed at school, then pass tests for the first time in their lives and get promoted, having gained the confidence they were lacking.
The program includes accommodation and breakfast and there are many restaurants nearby or supermarkets to buy food and cook in the gourmet kitchen. It's a lot of fun and that's just the side effect.

Alternatively, for Sydney Clients, who wish to do the program here in Sydney, you can come to:
36 Queen Street, Mosman, NSW 2088
and enjoy the same 30-hour-one-on-one program in your own city. Ok, you have to get to Mosman in the morning at a time that suits you to beat the traffic, and pick up your child in the afternoon at 3pm or 3.30 pm. The outcome, however, will be the same:
You or your child will gain the confidence to master their literacy, numeracy and/or attention and will leave with all the tools and materials necessary to continue their journey towards a rewarding school experience.
All our programs are tailored for the individual to use their visual or kinaesthetic learning preference to gain mastery in an auditory environment, which their schooling represents. They will be equipped with the tools, confidence and competency to apply their new knowledge in any setting.
