Just wanted to say thank you for some tips and AE guidance shared around approaches to defence mode and dyslexia. I’ve read the ebook on motivation and taken on board a few suggestions from the group here. We think by helping our son with talking through bite size info, providing options and giving him space to reflect with a two week break from studying he’s coming to a decision about continuing his studies over a longer period of time (which is totally fine!) this means he’s got time to practice study skills with the dyslexia (recent diagnosis) and continue to learn, which he loves instead of shutting down and retreating to ‘I’m good for nothing, can’t do’ statements. Hoping to agree support with his tutor/mentor tomorrow :)
