More about Sue Hall….

Sue Hall, a Davis Dyslexia Correction Facilitator, presents a unique and exciting insight into the ‘gift’ behind so many learning challenges, including dyslexia.  It is estimated that one third of the population, have this unique gift, many more than are diagnosed.   So many children today appear to have ‘learning disabilities’, but in fact, they are very capable of learning; they just learn differently, and different is not disabled.

Sue trained as a Davis Dyslexia Correction Facilitator with Ron Davis in the UK, and was delighted to discover that she too was dyslexic. She emigrated to Canada in 1998 and is one of over 400 Facilitators worldwide. Sue feels very privileged to help those with ‘the gift’ overcome their challenges and enjoy learning. She is totally dedicated to this approach, knowing it addresses the cause of the challenges.

Sue loves to speak to groups of parents, teachers, educators, and of course dyslexics, sharing her knowledge of the perceptual gift that underlies their talents and their challenges. She is truly thankful for to all her students, past and future for the learning experience that they share together.
She is thrilled to have written her first book, Fish Don’t Climb Trees, published by Friesen Press, August 2014.
