A holistic approach to SEN - Conference 2023

Dyslexia – where to start?

Join us for this relaxed and informative session at our new second site ‘Toucan HubII’, which is situated next door to Blaydon Rugby club.

If you have concerns about your child’s progress in reading and you suspect they may be dyslexic or if your child has a recent diagnosis of dyslexia, come along and find out more information.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions and socialise with other families and children with similar experiences. We’ll jargon bust some of the language used when discussing literacy, look at strategies for learning, interventions, and accommodations. As always, there will also be activities for the young people that promote dyslexic strengths plus refreshments.

Tickets are priced at £5 per family.

Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult. You will need to provide your own lunch.
