Pennie Aston is the Director and Founder of GroOops Dyslexia Aware
Counselling (GDAC) – a registered charity that focuses on developing
resilience building, therapeutic, dyslexia aware approaches and promoting awareness generally of the emotional repercussions of dyslexia. Assessed as an adult, Pennie is dyslexic herself and has raised a neuro-diverse family.
Her presentation Mad, Bad, Sad – or just dyslexic? – will address the often overlooked constitutional difficulties of dyslexia and how they can impact on the emotions; her personal journey through perceived failure and success; strategies learnt on the way and how challenging emotional repercussions can be reframed into positive learning experiences – all of which has been embedded in the GroOops Dyslexia Aware approach.
