DYSLEXIA expert Marianne Mullally will be in Rochester on Monday to talk to parents, teachers and community workers about closing the gap.
‘‘Many people go un-diagnosed, struggle with literacy at school and then continue to struggle later in like,’’ she said.
‘‘Country mums have inspired me to do this because they are very capable of helping their struggling child.’’
The 90 minute seminar will be full of tips, insights and practical knowledge about what dyslexia is and how parents can help their children get over the reading hump.
Only 10 to 15 per cent of Australians have dyslexia, a disorder which involves difficulty in learning to read and interpret words, letters and other symbols.
The seminar is on Monday at 1pm at the Rochester Bowls Club.
