Dyslexia Awareness Evening for Parents


DATE CHANGE... Sadly Kate is unable to make Thursday so this event has been rescheduled for Wednesday 8th November 6-8pm.

To book please see the link at the bottom of this page.


At Books for Bugs we want all children to be given the opportunity to access high quality, affordable books that meet their needs and interests.

One of the challenges some children face when learning to read is dyslexia. Often this isn't always picked up straight away but as a parent you may have your suspicions.

Is your child having difficulty decoding words, are they frustrated when trying to read or maybe they say the letters are all jumping around?

If this sounds familiar then we have an event for you!

As part of Dyslexia Awareness Week, we will be hosting our first Dyslexia Awareness event on Thursday 5th October with guest speaker Kate Morris. Kate is an experienced dyslexia tutor and assessor who will be talking you through the following topics and will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • What is dyslexia & what are the signs?
  • Who can diagnose dyslexia & when?
  • What can I expect from my child’s school?
  • How can I support my child?

You can find out more about Kate here 

Following Kate's talk we will also be showing you the incredible books produced by Barrington Stoke, designed for dyslexic readers!

After finding these books for our own child and seeing the huge boost in his confidence when he could finally read a 'proper book' we knew we had to stock them so other children could benefit from then too.

There will be an opportunity at the end for you to look through our large selection of these books and if you wish to purchase any they will be available at 40% off the RRP.. the cheapest price in the UK!

Refreshments will be available and a there might just be some Barrington Stoke goodies for everyone to take home!
