In this article we would like to mention the great work FACE Fermoy in Co Cork.  FACE was set up to help children with learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, DCD, ADHD, ADD, Asperger’s, etc.

The objective of FACE is to run workshops on a weekly basis to identify and help the children with their learning difficulties. To organise Speech and Language workshops, Occupational Therapy workshops, etc.,

They also run physical exercises/Kindersize classes in relation to coordination, to improve children’s fine and gross motor skills, their sensory integration and their visual perception.

Other activities include drama, arts and crafts, swimming, outdoor activities, pony riding and music lessons to mention a few.

Family outing’s once a month to help the children integrate with children who have the same challenges and to socialise in a safe environment.

This is a fabulous parents group and we just want to spread the work so if you would like more information please call Tom Flynn 087 2278459 or check out  or
