Growing Stars is a workshop for children to help them manage and understand the emotional impact of having a learning difficulty coming from a learning difference.
It includes a parent workshop as well as ongoing support for parents after the children’s workshop.
“My daughter, for the first time ever, wanted to go to school at the start of the school year.”
“My son, at the start of the school year, stood up in front of the class and said ‘I’m dyslexic. It’s doesn’t mean I’m not smart, I just think in a different way’.”
“Definitely the way he understands his feelings. He can put it into practice and link to feeling nervous, saying “That’s ok I need to breathe” or use one of his techniques, or will verbalise it to us, or I can ask “what is he feeling?” It’s been really amazing to see what affect this workshop has had on him.”
“The parenting evening was definitely a bonus. Definitely a very good programme and I have talked with her teacher aide and RTLB, who are very keen to know more.”
“He is definitely more positive about school and learning activities also.”
“She has acceptance of who she is.”
