Our first 10 years

For over a decade we’ve made it our mission to:

  • Help children with learning differences and special educational needs to meet their full potential
  • Create a support network for parents of children with learning differences and special educational needs
  • Raise public and professional awareness of specific learning difficulties (SpLd) and the need for early detection, diagnosis, appropriate help and recommendations
  • Promote co-operation and understanding amongst parents, schools and specialists

Our Vision

For children with learning differences and special educational needs (SEN) to reach their full potential and integrate into society with the understanding and respect all individuals deserve
