Dyslexia Awareness Week 2018

October 2, 2018

Getting assessed and actually knowing if you are or might be dyslexic is a huge issue at any stage of any individual’s personal dyslexic journey. Therefore, for 2016 we have worked with the other major dyslexia charities, namely Dyslexia Scotland, Helen Arkell, Xtrodinary People and Dyslexia Action to on agree the shared theme for this year’s Dyslexia Awareness Week to be ‘Identification of dyslexia’.

Given the fact that dyslexia is a hidden disability and the most common learning difficulty we plan to deliver a powerful message that will prompt people to think and consider if they themselves or those close to them could be dyslexic.

A positive catalyst for change: Knowing if you are or might be dyslexic can be the catalyst for change in people’s lives and therefore a campaign to remove the barriers, the costs, the confusion and the myths will be a positive way to utilise the Awareness Week.

 

 

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2018 will take place from the 2nd – 8th October 2018.
