Good communication is the key to success, whether you're speaking in front of a large audience or trying to get a point across to a new friend. If you want to know how to speak well and confidently, you've got to believe in yourself, speak slowly and carefully, and have strong convictions about what you're saying. If you want to gain confidence in public speaking this taster course is for you.

Dyslexia and Dyspraxia Awareness - Thursday 29 March 2018, 13.30 – 16:00

Dyslexia and dyspraxia are examples of ‘Specific Learning Difficulties’. These frequently overlap. In fact, both dyslexia and dyspraxia can often co-exist in the same person. This course will help learners to recognise the signs of dyslexia and dyspraxia as well as understand the interventions that can be used for support.  In this taster session you will develop an awareness of dyslexia and dyspraxia.

These courses are open to reps, members, families and friends.
