This week Dyslexia Action has been busy raising awareness about Dyslexia Awareness Week and telling people why ‘Dyslexia Matters’.
You can still join us by telling as many people as possible about why dyslexia matters and to raise awareness about this specific learning difficulty so that teachers, parents and employers know how they can identify the signs of dyslexia and how they can help.
Throughout the week we have been focusing on the following themes:
What dyslexia is and what some of the signs are;
Early identification of dyslexia really matters;
Dyslexia matters at school and at work, so making the environment dyslexia-friendly can benefit all.
HRH The Countess of Wessex officially opened Dyslexia Action’s Egham Learning Centre during Dyslexia Awareness Week on 4th November, following its move to a new location on Egham High Street. The charity’s new Learning Centre supports children and adults living in the local community with literacy difficulties and dyslexia.
Residents who live in or near to Darlington and Stockton can support a fundraising sale at the
Darlington Learning Centre tomorrow: Saturday 8th November, 9am-5pm
A fundraising stall will be in Darlington market place, offering a range of items, both new and pre-loved for a suggested donation. Items include books, toys and a wide range of Tin-Tin branded items. The money raised will go straight into the Learning Fund for Darlington and Stockton.
