Dyslexia Awareness Week 2021

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2021 runs from 4 October to 10 October. The theme of this years campaign is ‘invisible dyslexia’.

Each day of the campaign highlights a different theme. Today, Wednesday, 6 October is themed ‘children’s day’.

Join our workshops for parents and carers to find new ways to support their child in reading, writing, and language skills.

Tuesday, 12 October- Reading

Reading can be hard work for many children and young people with SEND and it can be difficult to know what to do to help.

Book on Eventbrite – Curriculum Support Workshops for Reading.

Tuesday, 19 October- Writing

Writing is just not easy – and some children find it a chore rather than fun. Some children will happily write for pure pleasure, and others have to be encouraged to do even three lines of writing!

Tuesday, 23 November- Language

Talking, understanding others and knowing what to say are really important skills in life. Being able to communicate helps children make friends, learn and enjoy life to the full.

These workshops are to support children and young people of various needs and abilities but you might find some of the techniques useful to practice with your child with dyslexia.

See all of our workshops and events on the ‘Events and Training page’.

Follow the campaign and read real stories from British Dyslexia Association. Find them on Facebook, @bdadyslexia and support the campaign on social media with these hashtags, #DyslexiaWeek2021 #InvisibleDyslexia.

People with dyslexia who share their story all have common themes like empowerment, understanding, and celebrating different ways of thinking, learning, and working.
