New support group for parents of children with disabilities

A GROUP which provides information and support to parents of children with physical and learning disabilities resumes its meetings after the summer break.

KITES meets in Bearsden Burgh Hall between 8pm and 10pm on Monday, September 5, and after that every Monday during term time.

It has been meeting for more than 10 years and arranges for different speakers to give presentations on various topics.

Monday’s meeting will feature the education officer for additional support needs from East Dunbartonshire Council giving a presentation on topics including the Additional Support for Learning Act, co-ordinated support plans and the Curriculum for Excellence.

KITES welcomed new members or anyone interested in coming along. For more information, call Lynn on 563 8476.
