Are you a parent who has dyslexia? How do you explain it to your child?
We know that some parents with dyslexia can find it difficult to explain what dyslexia means to children and can even feel embarrassed or not want to talk about it.
· Have you had particular problems because of dyslexia that you have found difficult to explain to your child?
· Do you have some good tips for explaining your dyslexia to children?
· Would you like to help gather ideas to help one of our members write some stories for children to help explain it?
Julie McNeill’s husband is dyslexic and she has already started thinking about how they explain what this means to their two young children. We would like to invite parents to a short focus group to talk about their experiences.
The focus groups will be friendly and informal, and there’s no pressure to do anything other than come along once and chat with Julie and others in the group. Any information received can be kept confidential if needed.
The meetings will take place in Dyslexia Scotland’s offices in Stirling on 22 September at 2pm – 4pm and 6.30pm – 8.30pm.
We hope to have around 6 people in each group. Reasonable travel expenses will be paid and refreshments will be available.
To take part, or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org saying which time you’d prefer to come along.
