During the workshop, which was sponsored by The Children’s Museum Jordan, Juthour and The Cake Shop, Dr Rasheed shed light on strategic collaborative goals, best practices for effective team building and communication styles in partnerships.
“We are looking to enhance our existing partnerships with contributing experts and clients and bringing them to the next level in 2020,” explains Hind-Lara Mango, Managing Director and Publisher of Al Marji’ Publications, publisher of both Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh magazines.

Helping Parents Understand Dyslexia
On the occasion of Family Literacy Month in November and to dispel the myths about dyslexia, Al Marji’ Publications invited its Educational Psychologist Dina Halaseh from Mind Matters to assist parents in effectively addressing their children’s reading challenges in a candid discussion at Readers Bookshop.
“Dyslexia causes difficulties in reading, writing and spelling, but our focus today is on helping struggling readers,” explained Hind-Lara Mango, Publisher and Managing Director of Al Marji’ Publications, publishers of Jordan’s only parenting magazines –
Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh.
Readers Bookshop, Mind Matters and organic food and beverage sponsor, Juthour, joined forces with Al Marji’ Publications to host this event.
Halaseh advised parents that “dyslexia is related to how a child processes sounds and links the sounds to the symbol when reading.” As a brain trainer, Halaseh works with children and adults to develop their cognitive abilities through her centre, Mind Matters.
Chief Executive Officer of THE Group, Imad Bukhari, pointed out, “Dyslexia affects thousands of children across the country; no child should have to struggle with a disorder when there are proven methods to help.”
Readers Bookshop hosted this event to raise awareness and encourage parents and their children to discover the joys of reading together. Especially ordered books about dyslexia that serve as resources for parents are now available at Readers Bookshop.
