On Saturday 18th October, Read Easy held its second conference at Chipping Campden School, Gloucestershire, with nearly 50 delegates attending from across the organisation.
In the morning, we were delighted to have Christine Brown, a Speech and Language Therapist, to speak to us about how speech and language problems can affect the process of learning to read. Christine’s clear explanation of these complex problems was very much appreciated by everyone who attended.

We are very grateful to him for supporting us. Altogether it was a very happy and successful day with great feedback from everyone who attended.
