Overview

It is thought that 10% of the population is dyslexic. Despite this, dyslexia is not widely understood with many people not gaining access to the support that would benefit them.

This webinar aims to highlight dyslexia and explore the impact of dyslexia on people living with it, and the support that might be available to them.

During this webinar, delegates will explore:

  • What is dyslexia?
  • Positive dyslexia
  • Understanding dyslexia
  • Insight into what it feels like to be dyslexic
  • Indicators of dyslexia in both children and adults
  • Potential strengths and challenges in the workplace
  • What support is out there?
