Judith is extremely knowledgable and an expert in the area of dyslexia and other learning disabilities and it was a wonderful opportunity to listen to her speak in Hobart. Judith spoke about both her work experiences and her personal stories of her husband and grandson both who have dyslexia.
In this podcast, we talk all things dyslexia, its genetic links and how Judith now supports PhD students that have dyslexia.
I hope you enjoy this podcast, I especially liked discussing the genetic link as dyslexia runs through three generations of my family, fascinating!!
