Presentations to raise awareness of dyslexia

Two presentations will be held next week to coincide with Dyslexia Awareness Week.

Educational Guidance Service, a Halifax-based company of education and business psychologists, has organised the presentations to discuss dyslexia how it affects children and adults.

The symptoms of dyslexia are varied, but relate to poor reading skills, spelling, handwriting and expressing yourself through writing.

Dyslexia Awareness Week runs from Monday October 9 to Sunday October 14.

The service is based on Rochdale Road, Greetland and the first presentation will be held on Wednesday October 10 from 5.30pm to 7pm, for anyone who has children, or works with children, to understand what it is like for a child with dyslexia and what could be done to help.

The second presentation is on Thursday October 11, at the same time, for adults who suspect they have dyslexic difficulties, or managers, to focus on the challenges faced by adult dyslexics and accommodating those affected in the world of work.

The presentations are free and refreshments will be available.
