Adult with dyslexia - or think you might be dyslexic?
Dyslexia Scotland Skye and Lochalsh have been asked for help and advice from adults with or who may have dyslexia, which is affecting their day to day lives at work, at home and in education. The branch is setting up an Adult Network in Skye and Lochalsh and have asked Liz Rodger, co-ordinator of Dyslexia Scotland's Adult Network in Glasgow, to come to Skye and Lochalsh to help kick-start this new initiative.
The Networks are support groups for people over 18 who have dyslexia. As well as making new friends, the meetings can help you to:
- share your ideas and experiences
- discuss how you have overcome challenges
- talk about issues in education and employment
- learn from guest speakers
Liz's dyslexia was identified when she was having problems at work and was suffering from stress and anxiety. Liz will be talking about her own experience, as an adult with dyslexia, in higher education and in the workplace and how she has overcome her stress and anxiety and become a confident adult with dyslexia. The talk will be followed by a question and answer session and a chance to chat with Liz , the committee and others who support adults in education and employment.
Come along, with a friend if you wish, to Tigh na Sgire, Park Lane, Portree IV51 9GP on Monday June 26 at 7pm to find out how an Adult Network could help and support you.
