#DyslexiaAwarenessWeek - Empowering people with dyslexia
Published on 07/10/2019
1 in 10 of us are dyslexic. This week we are supporting the BDA in empowering people with dyslexia.
There are many strengths of a dyslexic profile – creativity, understanding complex information and seeing the bigger picture. Research has found that the dyslexic brain is generally larger making it much more creative.
At IDL we believe that with the right support throughout their education, pupils with dyslexia can go on to have really successful careers. A lot of key influencers in business and celebrities have dyslexia including Richard Branson, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Jamie Oliver, Sally Gardner and Mollie King.
IDL Literacy is a multi-sensory intervention that has been specifically designed to help dyslexic learners develop their reading and writing skills. Click here to find out more about IDL Literacy.
