Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Angela has a postgraduate qualification in Linguistics and is currently researching long-term efficacy of reading interventions. She established The Workshop Reading Centre in 2005 when she brought the Cellfield reading intervention to South Africa from Australia. Since then, The Workshop Reading Centre has provided reading assessments, remedial intervention and workshops to children of all ages who struggle with reading.
Parents, teachers and specialists who interact from a position of empathy, assist children to navigate their academic challenges with self-esteem and confidence intact. This is what prompted the development of the workshop “Experiencing the Child with Learning Difficulties”. Understanding a difficulty from an academic perspective and actually experiencing it are two very different things.
Simulated exercises presented in the workshop allow the participants to experience frustration and tension by spending a morning in the shoes of the child with barriers to learning, coming away with an enriched level of understanding to children that they parent and remediate.
Reviews:“Very insightful. After 31 years in teaching, I learnt so much in this [morning] session.”- Teacher“This will change the way I go forward in teaching. All teachers should experience this feeling.” - Teacher“Jam packed and mesmerising. What an eye opener.” - Remedial teacher“A better understanding of what our son goes through on a daily basis and how we can help him going forward.” - Parent“I have new insight into the understanding of the learning process and the difficulties, frustrations etc that learners with LD face.”- Educational psychologist
