Following up on our very successful Advocacy & Awareness Event (11th November 2016 at the Horse & Jockey Hotel Tipperary); the Tipperary Dyspraxia Association & Tipperary Dyslexia Support Groups which are funded and facilitated by North Tipperary LEADER Partnership under their SICAP Programme have organised ‘ADVOCACY IN ACTION’. This event will provide a platform for everyone with an interest in hidden disabilities to come along and highlight the challenges facing children and young people with dyslexia and/or dyspraxia and how they can be addressed. This information will feed into the Children & Young Peoples Services Committee Work Plan 2017-2019
