Dyslexia Awareness Week 2015 was held from October 5-11 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland it was from November 2-8.
The theme for 2015 was 'Making Sense of Dyslexia' and looked at how much of an impact the right support and interventions now can have on the future for people with dyslexia.
We also gave people the chance to contact their local MP and request Government look at improving provisions for those with dyslexia. We created two handy letter templates you could have been used for this and they are below.

2015's posters were designed by three very talented individuals with dyslexia: Jamie-Leah Grant, Paul Milton and Olivia Kelly. A huge thank you to all three designers for sharing their work with us and allowing them to be used for Dyslexia Awareness Week. The posters are free to download in PDF format and can be downloaded by clicking the images below.
Our resource packs were also available and each contains information on dyslexia and handy hints and tips as well as fundraising ideas and information on DAW events.
Dyslexia Awareness Week 2014 ran from November 3 to November 9 2014 and followed the theme "Dyslexia Matters..."
