Useful Information from other Services
Many services which we engage to support children with SEND at Orford produce flyers or webinars that you may find useful at home. FInd the most up to date ones here:

This team have been busy producing a range of leaflets for parents and carers on strategies to use at home - many of these will be applicable for children who struggle with reading and writing, not just children specifically identified as 'dyslexic'.. They are also planning on running half-termly webinars for parents - watch this space for more information.
