The group held an interesting session with Brenda Prendergast in March. Bren shared her experience of the Deployment and Impact of Support Staff (DISS) project and MITA (Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants).  With schools facing budget cuts this session was particularly pertinent.


We then held our AGM. The committee were unanimously re-elected and will therefore continue to support the group. The challenges of such a large geographical area and travelling issues for members was discussed. We’re always open to ideas for sessions both in Norwich and further afield, in Suffolk, if this is the wish of members. Just let us know!



Future events:


On Thursday, 13 July2017, we will host a session by Olive Hickmott on using visualisation techniques to support spelling. There will be tea and cake from 3:30 and her talk will be from 4:00 – 5:30 at The Dyslexia Outreach Service base, Taverham High School, Norwich, NR8 6HP.


We are planning our annual SASC approved update on Access Arrangements for next term. Members will be advised of the date and cost by email.
