October is Dyslexia Awareness Month
October is recognized globally as Dyslexia Awareness Month, a time to come together to raise awareness, share resources, and tell stories about dyslexia successes and strengths.
“Dyslexia influences at least 1 in 10 people and is a genetic difference in an individual’s ability to learn and process information. Over 6 million individuals in the UK have dyslexia and may not have received a diagnosis. Despite its commonality, it is often hidden and those living with dyslexia make countless compromises to ‘fit in’ to a neurotypical society.” — British Dyslexia Association.
The theme this year is: Breaking Through Barriers.
