LETTER FOR PUBLICATION
17th-23rd May has been designated as "Xtraordinary Week". The aim is to raise awareness and focus on the strengths and talents of dyslexic children everywhere.
To coincide with the awareness week I have written a free and simple fact sheet on dyslexia which provides information about the condition.
Children who have dyslexia can have problems with reading, writing or spelling. It is believed that one in 10 children have some form of dyslexia, which is Greek for "difficulty with words".
Parents naturally want the best for their children. They know that good literacy skills are the building blocks to educational success and a satisfying career. But many parents are in the dark about their child’s special educational needs and how best to help them.
If any of your readers would like a free copy of the fact sheet, they can write to me at: "Dyslexia Simplified Fact Sheet",
