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. Dyslexia is a phonological processing difficulty and this means that dyslexic people have trouble with a range of things including poor short term memory, maths difficulties, poor organisational skills.
Throughout the week we will provide information and tips on the other difficulties that face dyslexic people. We would love you to be involved. If you would like an information pack about the week filled with activities you could do please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art, Inventors and Writers Competition.
During Dyslexia Awareness week we will be having our Art, Inventors and Writing Competition in the age categories of Primary School, Secondary School and Adult.
If you know of someone who has gone to great lengths to help dyslexics, perhaps a volunteer who has gone beyond the call of duty or a teacher, teaching assistant or dyslexia friendly organisation that has given special care and attention and brought out the best in dyslexic individuals, then please nominate them for one of our annual awards.
