What difficulties may be faced if you are dyslexic and want to learn to drive? How can you overcome those difficulties?
Difficulties you may face
- Identifying road signs and deciding how to act on them
- Understanding the language used in the Highway Code
- Understanding the questions in the theory test
- Planning for the road ahead
- Planning for other road users
- Coordinating what you see with what your hands and feet do
How can I help?
- Provide support and practice for your theory
- Implement various techniques to help your planning and awareness
- Find ways to minimise and then eliminate mistakes
- Make use of diagrams unique to our school
- Provide a calm, distraction free learning environment
- Use your existing skills and find similarities to driving skills
I can also use multisensory learning and the Japanese shisa kanko system. Shisa kanko means “point and say”, and the method has played a big part in keeping Japan’s 200mph bullet trains completely accident free (watch video).
