Hi There,

I have applied for my son to attend 3rd and 4th class in St. Rose´s, Balrothery next year. He has been diagnosed with severe dyslexia but is coming on great in his local N.S. with loads of one to one help. I really want (as we all do as parents) to have the best possible education available to him, I just have two small reservations;
1. I do not know any other child who has attended this school so I really genuinely don´t know anything about it apart from the fact it is a specialist school for dyslexia.
2. I am worried about the social aspect of him settling back in with his school friends when he comes back to his present N.S. in fifth class ( he is a popular likable fellow, but is quiet and can get anxious). So any advice or information on this school would be brilliant, I would be so grateful.
