"Whilst schools have a responsibility in ensuring children learn to read and write and are able to access the curriculum, parents and carers have an important role too. In our experience the best outcomes for children with dyslexia are when there is coordinated support between home and school.
"The awareness event aims to help parents and carers develop an understanding of dyslexia and improve confidence in supporting their children."
The event takes place on Saturday, October 6, from 9.30am to 12.30pm. For more information contact Glenys Heap on email@example.com or visit www.parentchampions.org.uk.
