Belief Change: A Family Journey Forum 2021

Let go, be free, and unlock dyslexia

See programme below:

Can superpowers really come from struggles? With three simple steps, the answer is yes! Recognition, understanding, and action allows you to take ownership of dyslexic or neurodiverse tendencies and ensure your child and family no longer feel incomplete or less than others.  It’s a family journey, and belief change is key. Dyslexia Foundation co-founders Guy and Suzanne Pope-Mayell, who know this well from their own family experiences, will join us in helping show you how to turn survive to thrive.

This event builds on the launch of the fourth focus for Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand – the family. Following successful advocacy and action in education, youth justice, and the workplace, the family is the next arena for fostering paradigm change (mind-shift) in understanding and harnessing the strengths of dyslexia and neurodiversity.

The Forum will bring together dyslexic or neurodiverse individuals, family members, teachers & educationalists, solution & assessment solution providers, and anyone with a strong interest. Through two key presentations and an opportunity for questions & answers, the Forum will explore the reality of the family journey. With core beliefs formed in childhood, it is crucial that empowerment drives the family journey. Mindset is the key.  

Central to successful action is Belief Change. The Family Journey Forum unpacks this, looking at the belief systems, deleting the ones that do not serve and installing those that do.

The Forum will be opened by a presentation by Guy & Suzanne Pope-Mayell who co-founded the Dyslexia Foundation. Drawing from their family experiences of dyslexia, dyspraxia, aspergers, and ADHD they will deliver insights that will support you and your own family's journey from survive to thrive.

The centrepiece of the event is a dynamic presentation by international neural coding** experts Dr Amanda Foo-Ryland and Sarah Foo-Ryland. An equal dose of entertainment and liberation.

Join us for this groundbreaking event, and the life-changing opportunity to let go, be free, and unlock the strengths of dyslexia.
