Community Group MeetingS
It was wonderful to see so many parents at our first community meeting for parents. We shared lots for ideas, experiences and knowledge about the causes of dyslexia, the effects and the SEND Code of Practice.
A big thank you to:
France Robertson (Former Dyslexia Action Area Manager) for her wonderful talk on dyslexia awareness and help organising the meeting,
Janet Robinson (Former Dyslexia Action Deputy Area Manager) for supporting our parents and help organising the meeting,
Katharine Hannan (YDN Dyslexia Specialist Teacher) for supporting our parents and all her hard work.
Our next meeting will be in September 2017.
Thank you Iain from Clicker 7 for all the great information about Clicker 7 that we can now pass on to our schools and clients.

Thank you to TextHelp for offering your support and use of the Read&Write program that we can share with our students, universities and workplaces.
Thank you to Arran from LVG and Nessy for getting in contact with YDN and for discussing how we can work together in the future.
School SEND Partnership Scheme
It's been wonderful to welcome two new schools to our SSPS. YDN is looking forward to all the amazing work we will do together to help students achieve their goals and teachers develop their skills.
Holiday Study Club
Very proud of all our students who are so dedicated to their learning that they gave up some of their school holiday to come study at YDN. We even had time for a little fun and cake!
Our booster club for high school students is up and running. For high school students to be motivated enough to come for extra lessons shows grit and dedication to your goals. If you would like to know more, please get in touch.
New Links and PARTNERSHIPS
It was great to meet up with the Leeds and Bradford Local British Dyslexia Association Group and discuss how we can work together to support the learners in Yorkshire. A big thank you to Pat and Pam from BDA for all your support and advice. Our YDN clients will benefit greatly from this.
