Here is Paula's story

My son has just started high school this year and I approached the regional office of the NSW Department of Education (DET) with an idea to help all secondary school kids in our local area who have dyslexia. They liked my idea and so did our local National Disability Coordination Officer. Together with some local community organisations we have collaborated and come together to create a free day event for secondary students called "Learning Without Limits". This is scheduled for this Saturday 25th June. David Pescud founder of Sailors with Disabilities will be speaking. He is a successful businessman with profound dyslexia. Students will attend a healthy self esteem work shop and we will also cover technology options for home and school. We will be providing free assistive technology software and resources (Mystudybar from ) as well as explaining other programs that can be purchased. We have Gerry Kennedy, inclusive technology consultant speaking and will be offering hands on computer workshops of Wynn and Read Write Gold. Parents are also included on the day and it is a free community event. My hope is if it is successful then it can be run again in different regions so as to assist more students and their parents.
