A FREE dyslexia awareness event aimed at parents and carers of children with the condition will be held this month.

The Darlington branch of educational charity Dyslexia Action will host an evening session at the Dolphin Centre, on Thursday, February 28, between 6pm and 8.30pm.

The event is part of the charity’s Empowering Parents and Carers (EPC) Project, which gives information, advice, resources and support to parents and carers of children with dyslexia.

Glenys Heap, head of educational development at Dyslexia Action, said: “Dyslexia is a complex specific learning difficulty. It can be frustrating for parents to know how best to support their child with dyslexia.

“While schools have a responsibility in ensuring children learn to read and write and are able to access the curriculum, parents have an important role too. In our experience the best outcomes for children with dyslexia is when there is coordinated support between home and school.”

Places are limited and must be booked advance at darlington@dyslexiaaction.org.uk, or by calling 01325-283580.
