A COUNTY dyslexia association is offering free support and advice to parents of children in Bromsgrove who have or may have the specific learning difficulty.
Hereford and Worcester Dyslexia Association (HWDA) will hold a special workshop from 5pm to 7pm on May 11 at the Connect Building in the Wendron Centre on Chapel Street.
The group is being run by Jane Hateley and Linda Adey, both experienced teachers in Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD).
Interested parents and professionals will have the opportunity to speak with senior tutors and other parents to share experiences.
Parents who are concerned about their child’s progress in school will have access to support, information, resources and ideas in a friendly atmosphere.
There will be advice on how to help your child at home, the opportunity to have your child’s school and Educational Psychologist reports translated into plain English, and more.
The new Dyslexia Parent Support Group will then be held on the third Friday of every half term, from 5pm to 7pm, at Bromsgrove Dyslexia Workshop.
There will be free drop-ins throughout the year, some with guest speakers covering a variety of relevant topics.
All parents interested in the new group, whether or not their child receives tuition at the workshop are welcome to come to the dropin sessions and HWDA membership is not required.
