Dekko Comics are a series of comics that turn the school curriculum into accessible and highly enjoyable comic stories. They are based on a technique that Rossie Stone (the creator of Dekko Comics) used on himself to overcome his long struggles with Dyslexia and get his first Grade A.
In these workshops, Rossie Stone teaches how you can turn any school information or reading task into personal entertainment to make it more accessible, even if you have a learning difficulty. Through this he demonstrates powerful study techniques and boost confidence.
These Dekko Comics workshops have been very well received by nearly 100 schools since 2016, (including one in Finland), and have become a highly acclaimed resource.
Rossie has held workshops for primary and secondary schools, private and state schools, PTAs and local authorities, libraries and learning support institutions. He has also done much work with bodies such as Dyslexia Scotland, HarperCollins and the Boarders Book Festival, as well as being nominated for the National Diversity Awards. Dekko Comics have also been featured on BBC News, STV, Scottish Edge and TEDX, and have had several articles published about the work they do.
Dekko Comics request organisations arrange a minimum of 2 x 1 hour workshops. Organisations should have at least 2 Live Literature sessions available, or cover any additional sessions themselves.
