Dyslexia Awareness Month

What is Dyslexia? Dyslexia is a very common learning difficulty that causes problems with reading, writing, and spelling.  5 Facts about Dyslexia: 10-20% of people have dyslexia. There are 1 in 5 people who have the learning disability and it affects as many boys as girls. 

You can contact the British Dyslexia Association for help and information Helpline – British Dyslexia Association (bdadyslexia.org.uk) or calling 0333 405 4567.

The British Dyslexia Association Helpline is a national helpline service for people with dyslexia and dyscalculia and those who support them. It offers free, confidential, impartial information and signposting. We receive calls and emails from parents, students, adults with dyslexia, teachers, employers and professionals from a range of organisations.

It is through Helpline that dyslexic individuals can share their views about the support that is available. This may raise issues which, while personal to them, may well be affecting other people with dyslexia. All of this helps the BDA to take issues forward to influence policy, decision-makers and politicians.
