Marie Louise Coleiro and Dr Margaret Evans
6 November, 2014
Margaret was so thrilled to get her Maltese MPPB Warrant and even more thrilled to discover her picture in the newspaper! The next month she met President Coleiro again at the Maltese Dyslexia Association event and was very impressed by how seriously President Coleiro took the plight of dyslexic young people. Sometimes we say, “Only in Malta” – on this occasion I believe this to be true. Unless we the educational establishment all fully appreciate the potentially poor outcomes for young people who struggle to read and change our teaching practices, we will have a wealth of brilliant talent wasted. Sadly I think the success of Einstein and Richard Branson is not typical of most people who struggle with this single skill deficit. The reason there are so many dyslexic entrepreneurs out there is because frankly their options were limited to do anything else but employ themselves and get hired help in to do the typing and proofreading!
