In conversation with Mr. Shad Moarif - who in 1986 established Pakistan’s first centre for Remedial Education and Assessment of Dyslexics( READ, Karachi) and introduced the practice of Educational Assessment & extensive clinical diagnostics to identify Language Learning difficulties. It helped parents understand there were reasons why their children were displaying behavioural difficulties. He combined his knowledge of psychology, learning difficulties & learning theories to explain them.
Between 1998 and now Mr. Moarif has practised in Canada, lived in France, served as Vice-President, International Dyslexia Association, until Karismath took him to Switzerland in 2009. He finally settled in London after I re-married in 2010. Have conducted training workshops and seminars on Education & keynoted in several international Conferences on Education in Canada, USA, UK, Singapore, Kenya, Bangladesh and Pakistan. His commitment to educating rural populations came from the realization that they would benefit from remedial approaches to learning. It meant using highly specialised knowledge, skills and instructional design to make learning easy for them.
