Bridging the Gap

Bridging the gap 

Dyslexia? Dyspraxia? ADHD?

Just had a diagnosis of one of the above? Come along to one of CLaSS’ Bridging the Gap workshops.

The workshop will help you to:

· learn more about these ‘labels’ and ask questions

· look at your approach to learning as difference not disadvantage

· identify your own strengths and challenges in order to take positive steps forward

· access the range of services and resources on offer in order to achieve your potential and be successful at DMU
