Alan Davies - THRASS

Director Susie, introduced our guest speaker Alan Davies and wife Hilary from the UK. Alan Davies – a pioneer of THRASS – Teaching Handwriting Reading And Spelling Skills program. Rotary Central sponsored a free seminar for parents and teachers with Mr. Davies as the lead speaker, this was held at the George Town Yacht Club on the 22nd of Aug. 2016. Alan gave an informative, educational and most of all spirited introduction to THRASS explained the inspiration behind it, his personal experiences and how we can help those who face challenges with literacy. One example was dijital vs. digital  another foto vs photo  and how these are mistakes made by productive, intelligent members of our society and personal circles, both adult and kids. We were given charts “tumble turn” (ask a Rotarian that was there), showing how they work and help persons through a Multisensory Approach by linking the Visuals of the Charts with Auditory inputs of clapping. During the Q & A Rotarian Kent, gave his personal experience, one that many of us can relate to on some level. To learn more about this program visit THRASS.CO.UK anlong with their YouTube page
