We live in a world of words, yet 10% of the population is dyslexic (4% severely so). Dyslexia Awareness Week starts on Monday, October 8.
Cinnabar, an Exeter-based user-led company will be offering free advice for adults at Exeter Civic Centre on Thursday and Friday, October 11 and 12 from 10am to 4pm.
An experienced advisor will conduct half-hourly advice sessions to help individuals and organizations with their questions about dyslexia and provide information on sources of support available.
Dyslexia can be associated with other Specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyspraxia and ADHD. Individuals can opt to use their session to conduct a screening test, called the Hidden Disabilities Questionnaire.
All appointments must be booked prior to the sessions by calling Cinnabar on 01392 357501.
