As part of the drive a free dyslexia seminar for the Parkes community will be held on Friday,March 10 at 7pm at the Parkes Services Club (Official Dyslexia Supporters).

Parents of struggling readers invited. 10 – 15% of Australians have dyslexia, a disorder that involves difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters and other symbols.

With the growing rate of children in the local area, Marianne Mullally thinks she can help.

Marianne has trained in dyslexia with world leading experts in America andnow provides one-on-one intensive programs.

“Many people go un-diagnosed, struggle with literacy at school and then continue to struggle later life,” Marianne said.

“With every prep child now to be screened for dyslexia under a new program, the question for many parents is what to do next?”

Recent studies show that up to 15% of the population are affected by dyslexia.

“Country mums have inspired me to do this because they are very capable of helping their struggling child,” she said.

The seminar will be 90 minutes of tips, insight and practical knowledge about what dyslexia is and how parents can help their children get over the reading hump.

Marianne will be joined by Tom Mullally, a Dyslexia sufferer now turned entrepreneur in the social media marketing space who was, at the age of seven,told by his teacher that he would never amount to anything.

“The inability to read, write and understand the meaning of words is a serious issue causing anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and seriously limits employment. A significant number of those with such difficulties are dyslexic,” Marianne said.
