Recent testimonial from Richard, a General Practitioer, "I was privileged to witness Olive Hickmott teach 2 girls aged approx 6 and 9 how to spell using visualisation and grounding. Within 1 hour, they were so adept that they were spelling words backwards…it proved to be a magical learning experience for the children, parents and me…so much so, that 5 hours later, the girls did not want to go home…the speed and joy of learning had been reawakened in these girls, who at the beginning were so tentative…these techniques need to be rolled out to all schools as soon as possible. Seeing is believing…"

You can quickly learn skills to overcome many of the symptoms associated with learning difficulties, by learning new skills and increasing self esteem, through:

  • Becoming fluent at reading and spelling through developing the skill to "see" words in your mind's eye - the skill all good readers and spellers use naturally
  • Improving concentration and motor skills through learning how to stabilise your visual memory and clear confusion
  • Extending your visual memory for numbers, sequencing, comprehension, foreign languages, handwriting and other study skills

What makes Empowering Learning' s unique approach so different?

We work with those who have various SpLD diagnoses, looking past the diagnosis to helping people use their fabulous skills to transform any limiting symptoms they have.

The visual sense is the fastest system we have for learning and is the natural way young children learn - using their imagination.

Empowering Learning is focused on what people can do rather than what they can’t do.

Empowering Learning teaches people how to get into the best emotional state for learning.

Families are engaged whenever possible.

Teachers learn how students learn visually, incorporating a full multi-sensory learning experience.

Empowering Learning has studied how people without learning challenges think and behave.

The philosophy is a coaching person-centered approach.

Empowering Learning offers services from the Olive Hickmott, the co-founder of the work known as Seeing Spells Achieving, in association with those we have trained. This work has been further developed, now called Empowering Learning, simplified and extended for other learning difficulties such as ADD/ADHD, Dyspraxia, Tourettes, Dysgraphia, Aspergers and Autism and published in Bridges to Success - How to Transform Learning Difficulties. Empowering Learning is not a replacement for other educational practices and techniques it is complementary.
