Dyslexia Scotland Youth Day 25th March

Dyslexia Scotland are having their first Youth Day for young people with dyslexia which will be held on Saturday 25 March 2017.  It will be at the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow from 10am – 3.30pm. For more details see below:
This event is for young people aged with dyslexia aged 11 – 18.  Unfortunately we cannot offer places outwith this age range. 
The event is for young people to attend by themselves.  Parents/carers are of course very welcome to come and check in with their child during registration and make sure that they are settled, but we do not have enough space for parents/carers to attend during the day.
We will make sure that children know who to ask for help during the day and we will have a record of emergency contact numbers on hand.  
Please note that a film crew will be filming and interviewing people at the Youth Day. There is an option on the booking form not to have photos taken or be filmed individually, but we cannot guarantee that delegates will not be filmed as part of a larger group.
