eLearning Module: How to Succeed at Work and Home as a Dyslexic Adult

It is important that, as dyslexics, we take control of our lives and have the tools to do the very best that we can. We also need to work together to help those in our community who have not had many opportunities in life.

This programme runs alongside, but is not identical to, the book written by BDA Joint Chair, Margaret Malpas; 'Self Fulfilment with Dyslexia: A Blueprint to Success'. It looks at the ten characteristics that underpin the success of dyslexic individuals, and how these can be developed.
