Otterbourne schoolchildren produce video to raise awareness of learning difficulties
11:54am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
PUPILS at a Chiltern Tutorial School have produced a video highlighting some of the difficulties they face.
The independent day school in Otterbourne caters for children with learning difficulties including Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, and Dyscalculia.
The release of the video coincides with Dyslexia Awareness Week which runs from October 14 to 20.
The children also took part in the annual awards organised by the British Dyslexia Association and 10-year-old Ellie Malcolm won the art competition for the primary category. Her work will now be part of a display in London, celebrating the achievements of dyslexic writers and artists.
On Wednesday, November 6, the school will work in association with the Hampshire Dyslexia Association to holding a twilight session for parents and teachers, called One in Ten. The evening aims to give an insight into how children can be supported both at home and in school.
The school is also due to hold an open afternoon today (Thursday October 17) from 2pm to 2.30pm.
