Give your child the best chance of becoming an independent learner.

A summer camp for students with Dyslexia/Dyspraxia/DCD & Sp. Learning Difficulties (Age 7-17years).

Parents: On Monday morning you will see and use some of the Assistive Technologies e.g. Apps and the iPad with Secondary School Curriclum on it.

As parents, we are fortunate that there are new and exciting Assistive Technologies emerging each year, as I discovered when I visited BETT London Expo in January. I will be introducing some of the newest education technologies at this years' camp, as well as supporting students with learning difficulties, through the education systems.
