The Offaly Dyslexia Group is delighted to announce that we will be commencing workshops in the very near future! In fact, it is envisaged that the first will take place on 27th April 2009.

Before children can be admitted to our waiting list for the Offaly Dyslexia Group‘s workshops a number of pre-requisites must be met. These consist of a) Workshop Enrolment Form, b) Medical Consent Form and c) Parental Contract Form.

In addition to this an original copy of your child’s Psycho-Educational Assessment must also be submitted for the attention of the Workshop Co-ordinator who will treat it in strictest confidence. This requirement will enable the Co-ordinator to draw up your child’s individual profile*.

If available your child’s STEN/Percentile scores as indicated from their school end of year test results would also be helpful in assessing your child’s needs.

To securing a place at workshop (when available) a refundable* deposit of €50.00 per child is required. *This may be off-set against the cost of workshop attendance.

Please contact Offaly Dyslexia Group for further details.
