The theme of Dyslexia Awareness Week is 'Positive about dyslexia'
We are positive about the skills and talents of children and adults with dyslexia.
We are positive that with the right support, children and adults with dyslexia can reach their full potential.
We are positive that children and adults with dyslexia can be successful in education, work and life.
We are working to help turn the negatives into positives.
We are #positiveaboutdyslexia
