Dyslexia Awareness Week 2020

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2020 is here.

When we look at 2020 it is going to be one of them years that is certainly memorable. There are positives and negatives, but we always have to move forward.

Dyslexia Awareness Week in the UK traditionally is taking place the first week In October, this year the title of the week is Dyslexia Creates…

To me it is an interesting title, it is definitely looking at the positives of dyslexia and knowing that we all have strengths within us. If I go back to an early memory, and I think of the word ‘creates’ I do remember making James Bond gadgets and technology gadgets out of Cardboard as a young person.

I also thought it was time to re-launch my blog site Arran Dyslexia. It has been a number of months since I’ve posted anything on here, and now with some support from amazing people, I’m going to continue writing and communicating in many ways on how Dyslexia is part of my life, and how we can One Up our dyslexia.

There are many ways you can support this week.
