Dyslexia Awareness Week

To help us to achieve our goal of a dyslexia friendly society, we work hard to raise awareness of dyslexia and to challenge common misconceptions.

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2024 will take place from Monday 7th October - Sunday 13th October. This year’s theme is #DAW24: What's your story?

Anyone can get involved and help us to raise awareness. We will share a comprehensive set of resources to help you talk about dyslexia at home, in your school, college, workplace, or community group.

We’ll also be providing a fundraising pack with ideas and asking for donations to our Helpline so we can help change more stories

#DAW24: What’s your story has three key messages:

Every story is different.

Dyslexia affects everyone differently. Each person is unique and so is everyone’s experience of dyslexia.

Dyslexia impacts around 10% of the population, that’s over 6.7 million stories to tell.

A strong opening sets the scene.

The beginning of any story is crucially important. It sets the scene for everything that follows. But we hear too many stories where support wasn’t available early enough.

It’s never too late to change your story

We know that the right support at the right time can make a dramatic difference. Whether that’s later in life, in education or in the workplace. Find out what support is available to help you can start a new chapter.

Together, we can create a world where all people with dyslexia can flourish.

Whether you have dyslexia or know someone with dyslexia, you can get involved and help us to raise awareness.
