Dyslexia Awareness Week 2023

Group of business partners discussing ideas

Dyslexia Awareness Week from 2 to 8 October 2023, celebrates the diversity of the dyslexic community and the rich variety of lived experiences of dyslexia. This year’s theme is 'Uniquely You'.

Each person with dyslexia experiences it in ways unique to them. Each will have their own set of strengths and challenges and tread their own path through life.

It is estimated that 15% of the population have dyslexia and/or other specific learning differences (SpLD), therefore it's highly probable that there will be neurodiversity within any workplace.

Neurodiversity can be a significant asset to an organisation, bringing a different dimension to problem-solving or creativity in the way that an organisation operates and delivers its products and/or services.

Being dyslexia-friendly makes good business sense. Embedding this ethos within your organisation benefits everyone, it enables your employees to fulfil their potential and also supports your dyslexic customers and clients.
