About this event

Dyselxia Week 2021 

This year Dyslexia Week 2021 will be taking place from Monday 4th October - Sunday 10th October this year.

"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."

In Stockport we understand that there isn't many services that offer support to people with dyslexia, if you are an organisation that offers support to people with dyslexia please contact us
