Designed to help you understand the changes to special educational needs and disability (SEND) provision that are being introduced in England from September 2014 and what this will mean for you and your child.
Dyslexia Assist is a newly formed small charity set up by a group of parents who have struggled with supporting their children throughout their education. Our main aim is to share advice and learning tips in an informal and accessible way and invite others to work with us to build a relevant and useful resource for both parents and children. We have no shop, affiliation or request for donations.
Like CReSTeD, Dyslexia Assist have recongised that not every child wants, needs or should change school. They are working to set up a list of "Dyslexia Assist friendly tutors" and are looking for parents and children to help them out. If you can help them find tutors who can in turn help others, please go to their website and let's get this list moving.
This is a major change to our terms of reference. A reflection of the work our consultants and schools have been doing for many years.
We have updated our definition of qualified to reflect the alternative routes by which teachers can gain experience and qualificaitons.
