Dyslexia Support

The western education system is dominated by words. Linear, lexical information transmission is the norm, and most of us don’t think twice about it. We train our children to think and learn in words from a very early age, marginalising alternative ways of processing information. This can have a limiting, or even devastating, effect on learners.

  • Easy to use

  • Fun

  • Affordable

At Footnotes, it’s our mission to provide Visual Thinking training to support alternative thinkers to thrive in everyday situations. No matter whether it’s supporting within a traditional learning context, or enabling an individual to wholeheartedly embrace their very unique learning style, Footnotes provides a readily transferable method. An alternative approach such as this is urgently needed by many, to support individuals as they integrate with their education, no matter what the setting.

In this book Oliver West offers:

  • Unique insight into the mind of a visual thinker
  • Being chronically dyslexic himself, Oliver has developed a unique portfolio of visual thinking techniques for learning and personal development
  • Techniques and strategies which enable visual thinkers and those with dyslexic tendencies to discover why they think differently and find learning strategies which work for them
  • Proven successful in all levels of Education, from pre-school to postgraduate; students who have continually struggled with traditional education have found their ability to learn transformed through the use of Oliver West’s ‘Footnotes’ techniques. For many visual thinkers they have become an essential tool for overcoming day-to-day frustrations in memory and communication, in education and beyond.
  • The book introduces some of the main characteristics of visual thinkers, and then presents a range of Footnotes visual thinking training techniques in a dyslexia-friendly format.
