dyslexia explored #11 Benedict Philipps

Podcast #12 Benedict Phillips, 3D Thinkers in a 2D world.

Wonderfully creative and gently humerous Benedict Phillips shares about his severe dyslexia. A whistle stop tour of his story: – His school years. – 6 years of special educational lessons in a regular school. – Being illiterate at 16 – Excelling at Art School. – His ranting years. – The creation of the ‘Benedictionary’ to help Lexics translate their words into Dyslexic spelling. – Then his plan to help people learn to be Dyslexic with his ‘Exam’ as performance art. – His years of working in schools. So much more. This episode is composed of extracts of this one hour talk. There were 5min sections that were randomly dropped. So there will be some jumps.
