Dyslexia Awareness Week 2014

Monday 3rd November to Sunday 9th November 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.

Aside from the resources and fundraising packs we usually offer, which will be available for download in late-September, the B.D.A. is also holding a number of events during the week including a mentoring and entrepreneur’s event on November 4 and an author's event with Tom Tom McLaughlin, Sally Gardner and the British Dyslexia Association on November 5 at the Bloomsbury Institute. A full list of the events the B.D.A. currently have planned can be found here .

We are very excited for this year's week and will have lots of news and information in the coming months. We would also love to hear what you have planned, so please send information about your events and fundraising efforts so we can share them.

Last year's Dyslexia Awareness Week was one of the best ever with hundreds of people getting involved in events, thousands of people downloading our resources and tens of thousands talking about dyslexia online. Resources from 2013 and 2012 Dyslexia Awareness Week's can be downloaded from here.
