The Creative Mentors Foundation is a charity that helps students at school with learning differences to engage successfully with the educational opportunities they are offered in the areas of art and design and music. This includes students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, aspergers/autism and ADHD.
We believe that helping students in these areas of the curriculum, where they can do exceptionally well, leads to greater self-esteem and confidence. In turn, this can promote higher levels of achievement in other subject areas and in their lives beyond school.
Our approach is to provide mentors to work in schools within the creative areas of the curriculum. All our mentors have succeeded to postgraduate level in art and design or music and are themselves dyslexic and/or dyspraxic. We believe this experience enables them to have empathy towards the students we are aiming to help and an intuitive understanding of the difficulties they face.
