A WORKSHOP to help parents support children with dyslexia was held in Asheldham.

The event, last week, took place at the Village Hall, on Manor Road.

It was run by Cassandra Rollett-Reed, of Dengie, who herself suffers from dyslexia.

Cassandra runs Rollett-Ed, a company which offers one to one tuition for adults or children who are struggling with learning.

She said: “I wanted to help people with Dyslexia specific concerns. It is national dyslexia week this week, which is one of the reasons I chose to do these workshops now.

“I wanted to try and reach more families that I have not reached before. It can be quite tricky for parents finding out their children are struggling with things, and that’s what we try and help with.

“It can be difficulty to help people when their brains work differently from yours, that is what the workshop is about, trying to help people do that.

“It is something I am hoping to continue, and I will definitely be looking to run similar workshops in Maldon, Burnham or Southminster in the future.”
