A NEW support and advice group for parents of children who have dyslexia is opening in Bromsgrove.

Hereford and Worcester Dyslexia Association (HWDA) will open its new drop in centre at the Wrendron Centre, Chaple Street, on Friday, May 11.

The group will give parents the chance to speak with senior tutors and other parents, obtain information, and share experiences.

Bromsgrove Parent Support group senior tutor Jane Hateley launched the group to provide "another avenue of support" from schools.

Senior tutor Linda Adey added: "Our HWDA colleagues run a very successful Parent Support Group in Worcester, and for some time we wanted to provide a similar service for parents in and around Bromsgrove.

"Illness prevented me doing this, so I am delighted that Jane brought with her the same desire to help parents in this way, and the energy and enthusiasm needed to make it a success."

The group will meet first between 5pm and 7pm on Friday, May 11, and then on the third Friday or every half term from the same time.

Linda and Jane are both experienced teachers in Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) can advise in SpLD, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Autism Spectrum, and Dyslexia.
