Dyslexia Awareness Week  14th-20th October 2013

The theme this year was ‘Beyond Words’.  Its purpose was to address the misconception that dyslexia only affects reading, writing and spelling, but also, can impact on maths, memory, organisation, time management, as well as language and listening skills. In addition, there was a strong focus regarding the creative strengths of dyslexia.

During this week, the Specific Learning Disabilities (SpLD) team had a stand in the HUB and ran a competition to identify Famous Dyslexics.  It was an opportunity for the team members to be ‘out and about’ chatting to a variety of people and giving information about dyslexia and the support available at the university.

If you would like any further information, the SpLD team can be contacted in the following ways:
