If 1 in 10 people in the UK have some form of dyslexia, and 80% of students are going undiagnosed in schools, how many kids are being cheated out of a proper education? This juicy game-show puts our education system to the test, and asks why neurodiversity is so often branded as a weakness when it could be our biggest strength!
Melonade is a fun, fierce and full-of-glitter show that tears apart the Tory government’s laughable neurotypical education policies and celebrates the fact that no two brains are the same.
Expect melons, lemons and a rigged and raucous game show that exposes the academic bias of our education system, debunking myths about “soft subjects”, empowering the neurodiverse community and highlighting a need for a serious change in the way in which we educate and assess students.
