Dyslexia & You

Parents of dyslexic children in Devon are looking forward to a seminar called 'Dyslexia & You' aimed at providing parents with much-needed information on how to empower their dyslexic child at home and at school.

The seminar is a collaboration between two parents of dyslexic children who are passionate about sharing information and supporting other parents especially at the start of their 'dyslexic journey' when their children are starting to show signs of or have been diagnosed with dyslexia.

The event will be held in Torquay, Devon, UK on Saturday 5th October 2019 at the Brunel Manor Conference Centre.

John Hicks is one of the main speakers along with Liz Loly, both of whom are active consultants in the world of dyslexia with their own skills and experiences.
