Dyslexia Awareness Week

Monday November 3 to Sunday November 9 2014.

Dyslexia Awareness Week runs from November 3 to November 9 2014 and is an annual event that aims at not just raising awareness, but also showcasing the amazing achievements that people with dyslexia have made. This year’s theme is “Dyslexia Matters...” and will cover everything from creating a dyslexia friendly environment, supporting and encouraging those with dyslexia, and our ongoing campaign to include dyslexia awareness in initial teacher training.
