Invisible Dyslexia - a webinar for Dyslexia Awareness Week

About this event

Invisible Dyslexia - presented by Katrina Cochrane on behalf of the Adult Dyslexia Centre

We know that dyslexia comes with many challenges, but many people in our community feel like their struggles are unseen. Because dyslexia itself isn’t visible, individuals with dyslexia often feel unsupported, unwanted, invisible. From the child at school struggling to keep up with the rest of their friends, to the office worker feeling like they don’t belong.

Dyslexia also too often goes hand in hand with other invisible challenges. People can struggle with their mental health. There can be discrimination in the workplace. Legislation fails to consider the dyslexic perspective. Under-represented groups become lost.

That’s why this dyslexia week we are focussing on Invisible Dyslexia, to explore the entire theme of visibility within our community. We’ll highlight the importance of mental health, increase visibility of underrepresented groups, and raise serious issues of dyslexia being overlooked within education and the workplace.

This webinar presented by Katrina Cochrane is to raise awareness of dyslexia and to support the Adult Dyslexia Centre - www.adc.org.uk.

Tickets are a donation of £5 and will support their work with adults and children. Further donations can be sent to https://localgiving.org/charity/adult-dylexia-centre/.

All money raised will go to the ADC to fund their services which include a Helpline as well as offering assessments and the Adult Support Group.

More information about the work of the Adult Dyslexia Centre can be found on the ADC website -www.adc.org.uk.
