"Students previously disengaged with the education system, now regularly attend school and help others. Vital program that every teacher could use in the classroom. All resources hands on and ready to go." Nathalie Jeevee-Edwards. SENCo.

Posted by DYSCO on Monday, 10 December 2018

I can definitely take tips from today directly to the classroom tomorrow.

Teacher
Mamaku School

1st day: Child read a few words that she knew.
2nd day: Child read 2-3 pages with me.
3rd day: Child said to me, “Whaea, I will read it by myself.” And she did.
Comprehension of the story by using this strategy is fantastic!

Karina Hope
LSA – Western Heights Primary School

Really like her use of culturally responsive tools and the pedagogy of linking them to brain gyms.

Gary Veysi
Principal – Mamaku School

Before: How must it feel to be a child who doesn’t fit the learning norm, who learns in a different way to others and who needs to be constantly on the move while the rest of the class sits quietly!
My little friend M knew just how this felt. He had a busy, enquiring and active brain and he loved to learn. However learning for him meant moving – swinging on a chair, walking around the room & never sitting still. 

After:Thanks to the knowledge of Andria Studman from DYSCO Rotorua, we were given the chance to introduce strategies and resources including the move n rock stool, and it was a game changer. 
M was able to rock and tilt while still listening and learning, and the results were amazing. 

Rachael
Learning Support Assistant – Mamaku School

Andria provided PLD for all staff on dyscalculia, dyslexia and dysphasia.
Andria’s Programme to empower students to overcome learning difficulties has helped to identify and implement strategies to support student learning and strengthen their leadership qualities.

Andria’s philosophy of working collaboratively from a strengths-based approach aligns with our mauri, Tikanga Mãori and Tikanga Toi.

We fully support Andria as a PLD provider in kura as her unique skillset supports us all to achieve our respective visions which is always to empower our tamariki to attain their potential.
Tatou katoa, Tatou Ka Toa
(together we will succeed)

Josie Gage
Principal – Te kura Toitü o Te Whaiti-nui-a-Toi

Andria provided PLD for all staff on dyscalculia (dyslexia for mathematics).

100% of staff self-assessed as having improved capability in understanding at risk achieving students in math.  Furthermore, these understandings are sustainable as teachers are still using the pedagogical tools a year later to support student needs.

Our Rumaki staff really came on board as they realised that this approach offered a real way for our Mãori students to come to grips with and overcome learning barriers. This supported the principles embedded in and the philosophies of Ka hikitia.

Niels Rasmussen
Principal – Sunset Primary School

Andria delivered a 30 minute presentation to our staff on dysgraphia. All staff felt they came away significantly more knowledgeable 

Andria also supported a group of teachers with a wealth of ideas and strategies to support learners with dyspraxia and dyslexia. These were practical and were able to be put into practice immediately.

Andrew Sinclair
Principal – Kawaha Point School

Working with Andria’s pedagogy and Pedagogical tools…
I have known Andria for 4 years from when she was working as an outstanding Teacher at Ngongotaha Primary School. My daughter Darcie who is of Māori  decent,  has no characteristics of any of the dys- orders, is not on any spectrum, was in Andria’s class, she has benefitted immensely from having Andria as her classroom teacher especially the counting sticks.
I am excited to be part of the Professional Development that Andria is running at Tainui Full Primary School in Tokoroa. 

Crispian Rakels
Beginner Teacher – Tainui Full Primary School

Andria Studman is an absolute inspirational speaker, who has the ability to easily engage her audience and hold their attention and motivate them.

We are fortunate to have hosted this remarkable person on two different occasions at my kura and at a national conference of a collective of 30 Kura.

Pem Bird
Poutoko – Te Kura Kaupapa Motuhake o Tawhiuau

Thank you so much Andria you have inspired both myself and my staff. We talk maths more than we used to. We laugh about it, we analyse about it and we are inspired by it all over again. It’s like having all beginning teachers hungry to learn and eager to do their best.

Assistant Principal
& class teacher with 15 years’ service

I love all of the practical ideas and equipment.  DYSCO Training has a positive impact on ALL learners, not just the target children.
The single biggest benefit I have found from this approach to learning is the improvement in the children’s 
attitudes to learning, their increasing ability and their growing independence.

Dominique Chandler
Year 3 Teacher – Western Heights Primary School Rotorua

Before: I know nothing about dyslexia.  I’m keen to learn for the best interests of my whãngai boy who has difficulties in school.  He struggles and is behind which is a concern as the school and myself have tried many strategies.
After: I’ve actually put the sessions with Andria into practice with my son and the strategies I’ve learnt have benefitted myself and my family.  Awesome!
