A condensed, jam-packed workshop to help you understand and support your child, who may have a diagnosis of dyslexia or is falling behind at school.
Difficulties develop into obstacles because of the increased need for children to read and write larger volumes, quickly and accurately. This dyslexia workshop will help you understand why your child is not progressing in line with their peers, what they go through each day at school and how you can help.
I will also explain the typically weak cognitive functions found in dyslexics which impact how they acquire academic skills e.g. memory, sound processing, visual processing and motor co-ordination.
The groups are small and inclusive and there will be lots of time to ask questions.
