Aidan’s Journey
A free webinar for SPELD NZ members
7pm – Tuesday 31 August 2021

(NB:  If you missed this webinar, contact us for a link to the recording (SPELD NZ members only):  nationaloffice@speld.org.nz

Hear Aidan Milner’s inspiring story on how he has managed to overcome the challenges of severe dyslexia and dyscalculia.

Labelled lazy by teachers, Aidan struggled through primary school. However, thanks to one-to-one lessons, some clever strategies, special accommodations and sheer grit, he thrived during his senior years at high school and at university. He now works as an engineering geologist – a feat he would never have thought possible. After Aidan has shared his story, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
