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.

2014 Resources

This year we have two posters and information packs available, one for the workplace and one for education. The PDFs are below and the JPEGs above. We are happy for you to print from whichever file you find easiest.
