What is Dyslexia Potential?

Created specifically for children with dyslexia or similar learning differences, Dyslexia Potential is a programme that enables dyslexics to discover and develop their strengths to help them at school.


What's Included?





Video-based and interactive with a holistic approach, Dyslexia Potential is both empowering and effective. Plus, as your child goes through the course, you’ll have access to all the parent resources so you can learn alongside them.

What’s A Dyslexic Superpower?Learn about dyslexic superpowers, what they are how to identify them and why you have them. In this video, we start by looking at Creativity.
Open-mindedness & 3D ThinkingWe look at the next set of superpowers, Open Mindedness and 3D Thinking, and explore ways that the learner can develop these powers to overcome challenges in the classroom.
Big Picture Thinking & CompassionThe next superpowers are Big Picture thinking and Compassion. Big Picture thinkers are typical dyslexics as they don’t focus on details. Compassionate dyslexics are those who gain empathy from their struggles
Visual Memory & strategical ThinkingThese strengths often come together and can be a mighty force! We look into each of these superpowers and why they work so well with each other.
Leadership & DifferentWe recognize the fact dyslexic learners can feel different in the classroom, and how this can be a superpower in itself combined with the other powers, dyslexics can become great leaders.
Social Awareness, and BeyondIn this lesson, we’ll explore the final superpower, Social Awareness. Then we will look at how the superpowers come together to help kids overcome challenges at school, and in life.
