On 13 September 2017, we had our annual AGM: the Avon Group continues to expand with over a hundred members and we are in a good financial position. Brendan Dobrowolny, has spoken to our group before and this time came to talk specifically on Neurolinguistic Programming and practical uses for SpLD. He is one of forty NLP practitioners in the UK and coaches adults in the workplace as well as children ages 6 years to 19 years. The aim of his talk was to focus specifically on how to support students with special educational needs cope with anxiety and lack of self-esteem. We really wished we had had more time to explore this fascinating subject!


On 13 November 2017, we had our annual visit from Nick Lait from the JCQ, updating us on Access Arrangements. This is always a very informative talk and well received by members.


On Thursday, 25 January 2018, we will have enjoyed Tom Jeffery’s presentation on TRUGS and How to Support Reading at home and at school.
