Dyslexia Ayrshire meets Tam Baillie - Scottish Commissioner for Children and Young People's Rights
Date: Saturday 30th May 2015
Venue: McDonald Lecture Theatre, University Hospital, Ayr
On 28 February 2015 young people with Dyslexia, and a number of parents, met with the Scottish Commissioner’s team and spoke to them about their experiences with dyslexia in school.
The Scottish Commissioner Tam Baillie is now coming himself to hear directly from young people and their parents. He wants to make an “action” report, to decide what to do to improve things - Tam's job is to protect young people's rights.
Your experience really matters! This is your chance to have your view heard by those with the maximum power to change things in Scotland!
The Meeting: is for young people with Dyslexia (5-18yrs) and their parents, so you can talk freely with someone separate from school. You will not be identified or singled out.
Parents, you are especially welcome to come, even if your child is unable.
The Reason: Dyslexia Ayrshire has reason to believe the experiences of some young people with Dyslexia in school affect their rights, and can lose for them their life opportunities, their self-respect, their ambitions, their imagination, and sometimes their healthy mind-set.
Dyslexia Ayrshire continues to make an effort to engage with all authorities to make things better for young people with Dyslexia and is looking for a large turnout to support these young people of today’s (and tomorrow’s) generation!
Please make a special effort to attend, to show Dyslexia in school is an important issue!
