  2. I am Josephine Hill and was Bobbie Hill's partner for 54 years. Bobbie created and produced GAMZ card games but developed rheumatoid arthritis, Brexit was a huge problem too, and was forced to close GAMZ. The sad news is that Bobbie passed away after a horrendous illness on 2nd June 2022. Beware of the first signs of diverticulitis it can lead to a fatal consequence. If you wish to respond please email [email protected] This will eventually be followed by a new GAMZ website containing an obituary and, eventually, details of her funeral which I hope will be webcast. Responses may be included on the website. Please state if you do not want your response to be displayed.

  4. Hi I'm Sarah I am very interested in talking to other adult dyslexics. I was diagnosed when I had my children tested since I had been aware of a common thread! Giving a name to the difficulties I had thought were my 'just not coping tha well with certain aspects of life' made a world of difference to my outlook. I knew that I would not ever have to wake up every morning morning thinking 'If I try harder today I will get it right.'

  7. Hey ! I'm Connor, a final year student studying Computer Science. I am writing my final year paper on Dyslexia and how we can further improve tools with the help of AI. I think this would be a very successful project, but in order to allow the AI to work, I need data for it to learn from. I know self-advertising isn't allowed, but I would really appreciate if you would complete the test I have made. You don't need to provide your full name, you can just use an alias. I just need something to know who's data is whose, and your name won't be included in the written work. https://forms.gle/yB7xroShStNwzM2b8 Thank you !
  8. Hello everyone! If you could spare some time to complete my master’s dissertation questionnaire it would be much appreciated. I am investigating the impact of the age at which someone is diagnosed with dyslexia on well-being in adulthood. All are welcome to complete the questionnaire BOTH dyslexic and non-dyslexic individuals. LINK: https://goldpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_86UWZjYJDv4Bs90 Thank you in advance !
  9. Hi - I've been looking at the screen overlays to reduce the eye stress from working at home all day on my pc. Having looked at the catalogue and when you click on the colours, they all look very bright. The example picture shows a soft blue colour that looks perfect, however the aqua looks very garish... If anyone could confirm the colour or mixed colours that would be greatly appreciated
  10. I have found courts most accommodating and supportive of people with additional needs.
  11. Required second hand reader pen please
  12. I was diagnosed with dyslexia this year. I have always struggled with reading and writing but developed my own ways if coping which masked my difficulties. I have a 5year old son who has started to read but I have noticed some of the similar patterns I had/have. I know it's early at this stage but wondered if there are any assessments that can be done at this stage and if any one has ideas about how I can make reading fun.
  13. I am due to give evidence in Court for the defense and have asked for questions in advance as I have a problem with my memory - the claimant is refusing to allow this adjustment has anyone any experiences or advice? I think this puts me in a gravely disadvantageous position seems so unfair .
  14. Hello, Bit of a random question, I have to sit equivalency exams to be excepted onto a PGCE. I am especially worried about the English, aside from all the obvious worries regarding spelling etc, I haven't written much by hand for about 20 years. Does anyone use a type of pen that makes this easier? It is so frustrating exams are still completed by hand, considering in my working life I have never had to write more then a few sentences without a computer thanks Georgie
  15. Hi, So to introduce myself ... Born in 1960, and profoundly dyslexic, I was to enter an education system that wasn't ready for me ... to be honest, I wasn't ready for it either! I would frequently write in mirror-writing, I couldn't spell at all and my reading ability was shockingly poor. I was unable to read out loud at all, just treating the class to uninterrupted silence whenever asked to read. Every time I wrote a word I'd come up with a different spelling for that same word. This drove my teachers mad! Given that dyslexia wasn't recognised, back then, as a disability, I was just handed out as many punishments as my teachers could come up with. Clearly, none worked! Hidden in plain view! In order to escape such a painful world, into which I clearly didn't fit, I developed the ability to 'daydream'. I'd escape to my own fantasy world, a world in which I could be creative, invent things and a world which had hopes and possibilities. This daydreaming not only got me though my school years, but, also developed my creativity and ability to apply alternative thinking to situations that had others stumped. Leaving the education system was a triumph for me. I'm sure it would be different now, but this was the first time in my life, that I had the opportunity to succeed, on my own merits, and I was very successful at it. I've adopted work-arounds to overcome the things with which I've struggled the most. I also understand my limitations. Therefore, I don't waste my time trying to learn in conventional ways, but, translate information into patterns and things I can better relate to. This way I'm not held back very much at all. I've actually spent much of my professional life giving technical advice to university lecturers and academics who have been utterly unaware of my 'disability'. Recently, I even did the previously 'unthinkable' thing and wrote a book! It's a short story called "Escape to Indrieg", which I've published on Amazon, based on my 'other world', the world of daydreams! For me, and those around me, who know me and my background, it's a real triumph, as shows that nothing is impossible or out of reach. So, I thought I'd introduce myself here and post this, to encourage those of you who may still be struggling - just know that you can beat this, and that it can give you a different angle, and indeed a competitive 'advantage!' I am very happily married and have a wife, who's ironically a 'school teacher' and is, by complete contrast to my early-years' teacher, very patient with me. I also have three adult children who have all had some issues with dyslexia, but again, have found ways to overcome it, in their adult life.

    Hi Everyone! :) My name is Talia, I am Currently studying Early Years at Greenwich University. I am due to do a research project, about how dyslexia has been diagnosed and managed through out years. I am hoping to interview some lovely people about their experience of diagnosis and management of dyslexia at a young age. Preferably if you were diagnosed in the 80's, 90's or Early 2000's, o I am also hoping to interview someone who is caring for an individual who has been diagnosed / managing dyslexia in present day Any responses would be great and I am happy to pay for lunch and coffee :) Kindest regards, Talia
  17. Hey my name is Malik Grey. I was hoping to speak to someone about their experience being Neurodivergent for research purposes as I am studying on a photography course in Derby. I also myself Neurodivergent. Email me if possible.
  18. I created 'Share your Journey' for people to share how they overcome their struggles of having dyslexia. The aim is to raise awareness of what it is like to have dyslexia and focus on people’s talents. I am also appealing for teachers to share tips on supporting students with dyslexia and recommendations for useful websites Please click website link for more information.Website

  23. Hello, this my first post ? I have just returned from the TES SEN conference in London which was well worth going to, 2 jam packed days and now exhausted! I am a specialist music teacher and published author of 'The Creative Songwriting Journal'. Which is currently being used by schools, parents and therapists. I would like to get it registered as an SEN book. Does anyone know what the process is?
