Occupational Therapy students team up with Olympian

Andrew Lewis Sailing Foundation teamed up with Atlantic LNG Company of T&T once again to hold a seminar for some 100 children with dyslexia on the weekend at the Hotel Normandie in St Ann's.

By the end of both days, it was very clear to all that the event had achieved what it was set out to do, which was to empower the young ones and to make them understand that having dyslexia is, in fact, a gift.

The “Succeeding with Dyslexia” seminar was the dream of two-time Olympian and Atlantic Sports Ambassador Andrew Lewis. Being dyslexic himself Andrew was able to quickly connect with the attendees to share his challenges and more importantly share his successes.

...The attendees had a full day, they had motivational and inspirational talks from Vivian Wall and Don La Foucade and they did exercises and activities to stimulate their brain led by Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapist students from the University of the Southern Caribbean who were with them for the weekend.

Also present was the head of the Dyslexia Association of T&T Cathryn Kelshall who addressed not only the participants but their parents and shared some valuable learning tips and tools.
