Dyslexia: The Learner and Parent Voice
DATE: Wednesday, 5 May 2021
TIME: 8pm to 9pm
VENUE: Zoom Webinar
1 in 10 children will be diagnosed with Dyslexia in Ireland. This webinar will look at the perspective of both a pupil with dyslexia who has gone through primary, secondary, and now third level education with a dyslexia diagnosis and from a supportive parent who researched and fought for supports that should be automatically provided to be provided for their child. Some of the topics we will be discussing are: waiting lists for diagnosis, learning support, language exemptions and the DARE application process.
