Dyslexia Parent Support Group
Posted on: 29/11/2015
Do you have a child who is, or may be, dyslexic?
Come and join our group. We will be discussing and sharing ideas on how to help a dyslexic child with their reading, spelling and homework, as well as all the other issues that affect their lives.
This group was established in 2003 with the principal aim of putting parents of dyslexic children in touch with one another. We meet monthly during term time either for an informal coffee morning or a chance to listen to a guest speaker. The meetings provide an ideal opportunity to exchange information, share ideas, and share your anxieties and successes with each other.
During the year we invite several guest speakers along, all of whom have a professional interest in dyslexia. (e.g. Educational Psychologist, Dyslexia Specialist, Speech Therapist)
The second aim was to be a central source of information about which resources are available for dyslexic children locally, such as tutors and where you can get your child assessed. As such, I am always happy to hear from qualified professionals who can offer support and services for dyslexic children.
The group is a friendly, internationally represented group of parents, with the majority of their children being educated in English. You are also very welcome to attend if you are still unsure if your child might be dyslexic.
Everyone is welcome to contact me either for information or to join the group and attend meetings. You can also join an email list so you are kept informed of any meeting/talk that is taking place. http://dyslexia.eseng.nl
