Keep your diary clear between Monday 5 – Sunday 11 October 2020… it’s Dyslexia Awareness Week (DAW).

We’re running two special offers throughout the week, scroll down to find out more…

Throughout the week, the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) will be exploring #DyslexiaCreates. This is an initiative looking at the power of dyslexia to create ideas and organisations the invaluable contribution this makes to the UK.

The BDA recognise that dyslexia creates challenges and barriers too. Over the course of the week they want to raise awareness and look at best practice in dyslexia support that empowers individuals to achieve their potential.

Find DAW week resources for schools, college and workplaces on the BDA website.

Go Red

The BDA will also be ‘going red’ from the 5th. The Go Red campaign is a part of the Succeed with Dyslexia Movement that aims to create a community for dyslexia, including support for both individuals and organisations.

The campaign is encouraging schools, students, dyslexia associations and organisations to all get involved throughout the first week of October. It can just be a small gesture of something more larger – from wearing a red T-shirt to lighting up a whole building!

Take a look at the media library provided by Succeed with Dyslexia. You’ll find social cover images, graphics and virtual meeting backgrounds.

How to get involved.
