Through the work of the British Dyslexia Association and others, awareness of dyslexia has significantly increased. However, the knowledge and understanding around identifying dyslexia; addressing needs and how to develop strategies to overcome challenges still needs improving.

By playing your part in Dyslexia Awareness Week you are helping to keep the momentum going and work towards a dyslexia-friendly society.
