Help your child with dyslexia discover the joy of reading.

Edinburgh Libraries Chatterbooks group for children with dyslexia offers a friendly, supportive and caring environment for children to meet and discover the fun of words.

As the parents’ comments below show, it works...

"R had a ball and was buzzing all the way home. It was lovely to see her so excited about books again. School has been hard this year and she had lost her confidence in reading."

"Thanks for letting B join the group, for the few months we have been in Edinburgh. It is the first time we have seen him interact with others and be enthusiastic about coming to a social activity."

The group spend some time ‘paired reading’ in small groups and use music, drama, poetry, oral storytelling, games and other activities that engage children with reading. The staff team consists of two experienced library folk and four very committed volunteers.
