Free talk at Springfields School

Former Wales and Lions rugby pro Scott Quinnell will be at Springfields School on October 21 at 7pm to give a talk on dyslexia and dyspraxia.

The sportsman and his children overcame their difficulties after taking part in the Dore Programme, which advises twice-daily physical exercises to help with the learning conditions.

Headteacher Trystan Williams said: “Some of our pupils are making outstanding progress, but there is a smaller group who are not making as much in reading and writing. It’s sad because some children have dyslexia and dyspraxia, and it’s not their fault. There are children who can’t do things automatically.”

Mr Quinnell is the development director for the Dore Programme, believing that it changed his life and the life of his children.

The programme is a drug-free method of helping people overcome their educational disabilities, which Mr Williams believes is vital.

He said: “I am not a big believer of putting tablets in children’s mouths and hoping these issues will go away.”

Mr Quinnell attends Springfields School once a week as a mentor for the children suffering with dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Mr Williams said: “It’s tremendous to think of what they have done for this school.”
