Dyslexia Week 2020: Thank you

Monday 12 October 2020

Thank you to all of our supporters

Running from 5-11 October, Dyslexia Awareness Week saw schools, businesses, ambassadors and members of our dyslexia community explore the theme of Dyslexia Creates.

We wanted to say thank you to everyone for making the week such a success. Here are some of the highlights of our week's activities.

We campaigned for change

Thousands of people signed our petition to ensure that pupils with dyslexia get the support they need to succeed in school. 80% of pupils with dyslexia leave school without a diagnosis - we're calling on the government to increase diagnosis and tailored support in schools so every child can thrive.

For those who haven't had the chance, it's not too late! Please sign our petition today.
