Time out from Life and all devices


Guess what, I will soon find out how addicted I am or have been to my mobile phone. I’ll be off-line; mobile free, internet deprived, picture-less, facebook-void, non-blogging, electronically disconnected and of course unable to check emails, websites and all inquiries. Well, the last one will be taken care of by my lovely daughter, who is already stressing out about the new responsibilities of being my PA.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
