News and Events

Pacdda AGM Agenda is on Thursday 18 January 2018 7-9pm in the Community room at the far end of Tesco Hampton in Peterborough, by the Cafe. I do hope you can make it! We will have dyslexia specialists there who you can talk to and you can hear about our plans for 2018.

Free ‘Train the Trainer’ webinars on ‘Neurodiversity’ for teachers and support staff from primary and secondary schools, and post 16 institutions. In January 2017, a series of 3 free webinars for teachers was launched which can be viewed at:

These webinars cover Dyslexia and other types of ‘Neurodiversity’ (ADHD; Dyspraxia/ DCD; Dyscalculia; Autism; and Specific Language Difficulty). We hope all schools will take up this free training! They are available to anyone, so may be of interest to parents too!
There is a resource pack to download and also some very simple to use checklists for classroom teachers to help distinguish needs for different forms of neurodiversity. They are available at:
