How is dyslexia affecting your organisation? 
Did you know that 1 in 10 of your employees is likely to be dyslexic? 
Dyslexia Awareness Session for Employers 
 
We offer a half or full day dyslexia awareness session to help employers and their staff to better understand the impact of dyslexia and the adjustments that can be made to support colleagues, customers and clients.  
 
Our interactive training session takes place virtually, over Zoom or Teams. 
 
During the session you will hear from a person with dyslexia about their own experiences.  
 
The session covers: 
 
A background to dyslexia, the symptoms, how it affects your life and how you can support those with dyslexia 
How dyslexia affects literacy skills 
The intricacies of dyslexia as an adult, the impact that it has on work life and coping skills 
Learning difficulties that are often found alongside dyslexia, including ADHD, and how they function in relation to each other

Seeing Dyslexia as positive 

Despite the highly advertised difficulties of dyslexia, the dyslexic individual may also possess positive and valuable qualities. 
creativity, 
originality 
thinking outside the box 
qualities your organisation needs 
 
The Adult Dyslexia Centre was set up to promote the positive aspects of dyslexia and help individuals to overcome those negative aspects that can create problems in all areas of life including the workplace, which can lead to stress and absenteeism. 
 
Dyslexia is recognised as a disability under The Equality Act 2010, which states that reasonable adjustments must be made to accommodate a disabled employee. Employers need to know what is required of them, by law, and employees need to understand what can be done to help them maximise their contribution and be of value to their employer.
