 For many years schools have used linear, words-based teaching methods, assuming that this is the most effective way of educating our children. Learner who think in a holistic, visual way have consequently been marginalised and in many cases branded with a 'learning difficulty' label, simply because they think and learn in a way that is incongruous with traditional classroom teaching. Teachers and parents can struggle to know how encourage this 'different' way of thinking, often because they simply don't understand it.

About the author

 “In search of Words” by Oliver West builds on his successful “Footnotes” programme which many people will have enjoyed and profited from.

As a professional artist, printmaker and university lecturer, he has the experience to pass on his knowledge of visual-spatial technique to people of any age or any background.

The methods he promotes are simple and extremely practical.

But they are presented with his own special charisma. He is a brilliant teacher. His enthusiasm can inspire a whole school.

Dyslexics listening to him are astonished to hear someone talking to them in a language they can understand. 

For non-dyslexics his words, written or spoken, are a revelation. A whole new world is suddenly opened up for them. Here is a way to contact creative minds and, what is more, to rouse one’s own creative skills.
