Yesterday we were on a online meeting for the APPG on Dyslexia and Other SpLDs. The following people delivered talks and presentations: Welcome from Sharon Hodgson MP, Chair, APPG for Dyslexia and other SpLDs
Why there is a societal cost of dyslexia from Helen Boden, CEO, British Dyslexia Association
Exclusions and SEND from Simone Vibert, Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England
Dyslexia support in prisons from Lesley Clarke, Novus
SEND and youth offending from Peter Kyle MP, Shadow Minster for Victims and Youth Justice
Dyslexia and the workplace from Wes Baker, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
It was an interesting meeting and there were opportunities to ask questions or make additional comments. At least this time we didn’t need to travel all the way to London for the meeting.
