Next week brings our workshops to a close again for another very successful term. It is 10 years since the small group of parents came together to help their own kids and see if they could help a few others along the way. In that 10 years over 250+ kids and their families have now been helped. We’d like to thank everyone that has helped us in anyway big or small over the past 10 years as without your help none of it would have been possible. Esp thanks to IPB Insurance and Tullamore Credit Union, the Tullamore Parish Junior Parish Council and to the wonderful group of ladies who are running/walking the marathon (we’ve just had to enlarge the bus to a 33 seater). All of your support to the group has been phenomenal.

Our workshops run on a Monday night from 5.30 to 7.30. In castle buildings for which we are now currently taking names of children with Dyslexia aged 7+ .

We are also taking in CVs from primary and secondary school teachers who have relevant dyslexia training.
