Dyslexia Awareness Week

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2023

At the British Dyslexia Association we know that each person with dyslexia experiences it in ways unique to them. Each will have their own set of strengths and challenges and tread their own path through life. We want to celebrate the diversity of the dyslexic community and the rich variety of lived experiences of dyslexia. That's why we have chosen the theme of Uniquely You for Dyslexia Awareness Week. You are special. You are distinctive. You are exceptional.

Our Dyslexia Awareness Week artwork features fingerprints to illustrate this concept. Fingerprints are complex, detailed and beautiful. No two people have the same fingerprint and they are a fitting emblem for this year’s theme.

From 2nd to 8th October 2023, we will be celebrating individuals with dyslexia from all backgrounds and walks of life. We will enjoy learning about individual journeys with dyslexia and discovering the diversity of experience in our community. Having dyslexia can bring its challenges but it also shapes experience and perspective and makes you Uniquely You. We want to inspire everyone to value and appreciate individuals with dyslexia.

We will be sharing a comprehensive set of resources to help you talk about dyslexia and increase awareness of neurodiversity, whether in an educational setting, community group, or workplace.

You can look forward to insightful articles, engaging videos, and the opportunity to attend free webinars that will inspire and improve understanding of dyslexia within your community.
