Children Will Shine

The BDA runs Children Will Shine after school workshops offering specialist dyslexia intervention at an affordable price. They currently offer teaching for children with Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) in the UK The workshops are run by Specialist Teachers, Teaching Assistants and parents to support literacy, numeracy, personal organisation, promote self-esteem and advise how to maximise positive dyslexic strengths.

The aim of these workshops is for children to;

  • access affordable specialist teaching programmes
  • be taught in small groups
  • access self-esteem support
  • meet children with similar needs
  • reach their potential.

Sessions run for 1.5 hours after school at a cost £15 per session per child. They will cover literacy, spelling, sequencing, touch typing and self-esteem.

Parents will also get to meet other like minded parents to share information and ideas. The British Dyslexia Association positively encourages the support of dyslexic children with intervention programmes. Children Will Shine (CWS) works at grassroots level to enable children to reach their true potential.
