Lefts and rights

Sign post

Ahhhh a classic dyslexic stumbling block. I think I was young adult by the time I got this down: which side is my left which is my right.

I found it very useful to have cues to remember lefts and rights. In my case I am a keen motorcyclist so the throttle (the most important part I must add) is in my right hand. Another way I remember this is that I always wear a watch my left wrist and I write with my right hand.

Another visual cue it to put you hands out, palms down with the thumbs out, you left hand makes an L!

I discovered once I had my own left and right hands firmly operated in my brain, being able to project this out to other objects or people becomes a lot easier.

The focus is on training middle managers in organizations to effectively lead people with neurodiversity, like dyslexia. This approach goes beyond legal compliance, delving into understanding the unique needs of neurodiverse individuals and providing appropriate support. Dyslexic thinking and problem-solving methods, often unconventional, are highlighted.

Having similar traits to dyslexia himself, Mark’s dedication to supporting neurodiverse individuals stems from personal connection.
