Dyslexia Awareness Week 2013


The dates for Dyslexia Awareness Week 2013 are:
Monday 14th October to Sunday 20th October 2013.

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.
The British Dyslexia Assocaotion aim 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!"

With lots of events happening all over the country, look at the website for full details including;
  • Dyslexia Awarness Week Pack full of information on how to be dyslexia friendly and activities to spread awareness for either schools or the workplace
  • Dyslexia Awareness Week presentation for assemblies or staff meetings which focuses on debunking the myths around dyslexia
  • Posters download and print off our posters to use during Dyslexia Awareness Week.
