It’s Saturday, 15 November 2014, five in the morning and I’m at my desk and on my computer taking my first tentative steps into the world of daily blog writing.
I woke at around 4.20 this morning and lay in bed thinking about my work as a dyslexia coach – what I’ve achieved so far in my career as a dyslexia coach and about some of the things that I’d like to achieve as I move forward in my work.
One of the things that I’ve been thinking about doing for some time now is to write a daily blog about dyslexia coaching but the time has never been ‘just quite right’ for me to make such a commitment.
After laying in bed thinking about all of the reasons why I shouldn’t make a commitment to daily blogging, e.g. being too busy, having lots of other commitment that need to be fulfilled, worrying about what I’d write about, and indeed if anyone would read it – I decided that now is as good a time as any and so jumped out of bed to begin this new project.
There are lots of things that I want to write about.
I want to write about my views, opinions, and beliefs about dyslexia.
I want to share my experience and understanding of dyslexia coaching with fellow dyslexics, with parents of dyslexic children, with teachers and lectures, and indeed with anyone who has an interest in the issue of dyslexia.
I hope to give an insight into what I do as a dyslexia coach on a day to day basis – to share the way that I support people who are struggling to understand and overcome their dyslexia; and to offer lots of tips, strategies, techniques, methods, and thinking with you.
Now having made my commitment to writing a daily blog on dyslexia coaching I need to decide what I’ll be writing about in tomorrow’s blog entry. I’ll spend some time thinking about this today but I’ve got a feeling that it might be about dyslexic coaching itself, i.e. what dyslexia coaching is and what can be achieved from it.
I look forward to engaging with as many people as I can so please leave a comment about this post, your ideas about dyslexia, what you’d like me to write about in future blog entries, or indeed anything that is of interest to you in the world of dyslexia.
All the best and see you tomorrow!
