Parents of children with dyslexia meet 1-2 times a year to share information, get support from each other and plan initiatives to help themselves and/or their children.
To date Sligo FRC has organised the following workshops
“Academic and Emotional Effects of Dyslexia on Children” (April 2016),
“Alternative Practical Strategies when working with Children with Dyslexia” (April 2017),
Practical Skills for parents and children together (April 2018)
“Supporting your Child with Dyslexia” May 2019
Sligo FRC also facilitates the afterschool sessions for children with dyslexia (third to sixth class) held in the FRC one evening a week and led by two local experienced primary school teachers.
