You can help those with dyslexia get the support they need to reach their full potential. Simple actions can raise awareness and lead to policy changes, such as helping more people understand what dyslexia is and using the word dyslexia rather than lumping it together with broad learning disabilities. The items in this toolkit will help you get started by spreading the word through social media; speaking up about the scientific nature of dyslexia, and advocating for widespread screening, diagnosis, intervention and accommodations for dyslexic children and adults.
The more people understand what dyslexia is and isn’t, the more support we will see for those struggling to overcome it.
