This week is Dyslexia awareness week. To raise awareness the British Dyslexia association is highlighting the stories of individuals. Dyslexia can be completely invisible so this is a great way to raise awareness of the difficulties people can face. Over to them…
Your voice matters.
We believe that everyone with dyslexia has a unique story and the power to create positive change. Which is why we invite you to share your story with us.
By sharing your story you can:
- Enrich the dyslexic community by helping others feel validated, accepted and understood.
- Support the British Dyslexia Association in our mission to raise awareness of the realities of living with dyslexia.
This Dyslexia Week we will be focusing on the invisibility of dyslexia. This year we aim to offer a platform to those whose voices have been previously unheard. We want to hear your stories. Share your story with us here.
