Dyslexia in New Zealand
Described as an “inspirational speaker” by awarded principal Pem Bird, Andria’s skills and experience include: • Conference speaking – three Ngā Kura a Iwi o Aotearoa • Teaching – MoE accredited PLD facilitator • Parenting – Foster parent to 8 children
Working with students, teachers, professionals, parents, family and whānau in kura and schools in both rural and urban locations, Andria has spent the last 7 years actively researching and working in New Zealand.
Out of this, Andria has invented creative, innovative tips and tools to suit Kiwi kids and whānau. These empower people to harness their own gifts to effectively ‘find their own way in life’.
Andria owes her colossal success to the fact she has most of the dys-orders she talks about, and is keen to share these solutions that shape dys-orders into a gift, not a disadvantage.
“I believe EVERYBODY has the right to learn and to succeed in life.” Andria Studman
