The Bulletin contains reviews of recent research and publications. Articles can detail personal teaching experiences, reports from courses or conferences, reviews of books, games and teaching materials. The Bulletin has a reputation as a publication of high professional standing, and goes out to a specialised readership who are generally well informed. Reviews are written critically and fully on topics of interest. They reflect various aspects of practice, theory, resources or information which would be of general interest to Patoss members. The Bulletin is published twice a year.

The Editor welcomes contributions from all Patoss Members and other professionals in the field on any topic related to recent Specific Learning Difficulties. This could be an independent study or research which has been conducted as part of Masters/PhD study or as action research in your place of work.
