Dyslexia Awareness Week


This week is Dyslexia Awareness Week,
I can't stress enough how important the theme for this year is.

The idea is to raise awareness of the other difficulties that dyslexia can cause
and to show that it does not only relate to difficulties with spelling or reading.

Here's some info from the British Dyslexia Association


"The theme for this year’s Dyslexia Awareness Week is Beyond Words.
The aim of the week is to debunk the myth that dyslexia is just a difficulty with reading and spelling.

We want to highlight the other difficulties dyslexic people face such as poor short term memory, maths difficulties, poor organisational skills but also the strengths that it can bring!"


And here's more info on their website
about events that will be taking place around the UK to raise awareness.
