Barrington Stoke publishes advice pack on teaching dyslexic children at home

Barrington Stoke has published a free digital pack of advice, information and resources to support dyslexic children learning from home. 

The Homeschooling Help for Lockdown Pack is aimed at parents, carers and educators now supervising dyslexic students and contains a variety of tips on reading and homeschooling during lockdown, ideas of how to engage dyslexic readers, access to activities and resources for all ages, and links to a range of organisations that can offer further support.

The pack also contains specialist advice from Caroline Bateman, the founder of Achieve Now, working to empower dyslexic children. She commented: "This is a unique opportunity for dyslexic children to learn in ways that suit them away from the stresses and strains of school life."

Jane Walker, sales and marketing director at Barrington Stoke, added: "There is so much free material available online and it must be so overwhelming not to mention time-consuming to navigate it. We want this pack to be a good starting point for those families and an opportunity for us to share our advice, as well as supporting the work of the many brilliant dyslexia and literacy organisations we have collaborated with over the years."
