Weekly Round-up – parent workshops, special schools, aspergers, dyslexia, sensory tips and more

Hi all, yet again there is plenty of news and articles for you to get stuck into this weekend.  My particular favourites this week come from Included by Grace, a lovely blog written by a SEN teacher on why she writes about autism and also Aspergers Syndrome, the hidden disorder by Marimouth.  Also, if you haven’t checked it out yet, go and read Four Sea Stars inspirational piece on how she talked to her son’s class about autism.
