Researchers at the University of South Wales’s Dyscovery Centre have secured funding from BBC Children in Need to deliver four themed activity days for children with specific learning difficulties such as Dyspraxia or Developmental Coordination Disorder, Dyslexia, ADHD and Dyscalculia.
The themed days, which are open to children between ages 5 and 15 in Newport, will be held at the University’s Caerleon campus during August.
The themes are: Road Safety where children will design and make a film about things to remember when crossing the road (Thursday 7th August); Fashion for girls to come and make their own fashion accessories (Thursday 14th August); Nature using our forest school (Wednesday 20th August) and Music to create songs to help raise awareness of our strengths and difficulties (Thursday 28th August).
The days will be facilitated by Dr Catherine Purcell, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre and Sally Scott-Roberts, Senior Lecturer and Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist and a range of University of South Wales students.
