Doing The Best For People Who Think Differently

The dyslexia story is not all bad news. There is definitely a silver lining. Dyslexia often bestows on those who have it a range of remarkable talents and skills. These come under the collective name of Positive Dyslexia.

Many of the world's most talented people are dyslexic. The following notable people are or were all dyslexic:

  • Sir Richard Branson
  • Sir Richard Taylor (Weta Workshop)
  • John Britten (founded the Britten Motorcycle Company)
  • Tom Cruise
  • Keira Knightley
  • Sir Winston Churchill

MIKE STYLES, LITERACY, NUMERACY AND DYSLEXIA SPECIALIST

I am a Dyslexia and Neurodiversity Consultant, Researcher and Practitioner in New Zealand. I have been involved in the world of adult literacy and numeracy provision since 2001.

Mike Styles, Literacy & Numeracy Adviser @ BDA IC 2018:
Dyslexia and Neurodiversity Consultant, Mike Styles at the British Dyslexia Association International Conference 2018.
Mike talks about adult literacy and raising awareness on dyslexia in adults around the workplace.

There are significant literacy and numeracy issues in the primary sector as well as large numbers of staff with dyslexia. I have led a number of initiatives to improve the literacy and numeracy skills of primary sector employees as well as initiatives to support adults with dyslexia.

I am a Member of the British Dyslexia Association, and have recently returned from presenting a paper at Oxford University on how adult dyslexics are supported in New Zealand. My services are available for hire to assist leaders of the adult workforce and education facilities, who require information and support in this field.
