The children’s workshop making a difference.
A recent survey undertaken in the UK explored the
Human Cost of Dyslexia. In it were telling statistics, such as,

  • 82% of children with dyslexia try to hide their struggles,
  • 95% get frustrated because of their dyslexia 
  • 84% suffer from anxiety related to their dyslexia.

It puts data around what we had seen from the work we do. Out of these observations we developed Growing Stars.

We have been running the Growing Stars programme for two years now and in that time we have refined it to meet the needs of the families who use it. We receive excellent feedback that it helps the children and their families.
