New course: "Working effectively for dyslexics"

sjan-gives-courseIn Modena (Italy) we have launched our new course in 2016 for dyslexics during 4 whole days. Now we organize it in Amsterdam from April 9 to April 12 2018.

The course is an intensive skill training for (young) adults - employees and students - with dyslexia. Maximum 4 participants. 

Content of the course:

Street of Genes - Daring conference in Italy

Last year Sjan Verhoeven was asked to give a lecture on an Italian international conference on dyslexia in Modena. It has taken place at the end of November 2017. The conference was organized by Vittorio Melotti, a biologist and dyslexic, an enthusiastic organizer who does his own things outside the existing frameworks and thus shows great courage. This can also be seen in the diversity of speakers on these days of 'Street of Genes', as the organization of Vittorio is called. 

We can't deny it, we also went to Italy for the superb food!

Sjan has been honoured for her work with adult dyslexics

Sjan-awarded-knight-2017During the 2017 annual honours list, Sjan Verhoeven has been appointed Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau. She received this award from the Mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, for her tireless efforts in reaching and helping adults with dyslexia. "The target group derives a lot of support from your efforts, it gives them self-confidence and practical tools. But perhaps more importantly you are helping the emancipation process of people with dyslexia in such a positive manner so that dyslexia is no longer considered a disorder," said Van Der laan. (Photo taken by Jitske Schols.)
