I recently commissioned a Dyslexia Awareness Presentation for PHD, the global media and marketing communications agency. We’ve recently started to address a range of neurodiversity topics, and are amazed at how many colleagues have embraced these sessions. Those that have dyslexia are relieved they have been given “permission” to talk about it, and those who manage colleagues with dyslexia feel better equipped to help their team members shine. Dyslexia Matters delivered a perfect presentation to start our work on this topic. The presentation covered a wide range of topics related to dyslexia, including the understanding the legal context, dyslexia and specific learning differences, barriers to literacy, and the Equality Act 2020. It also delved into the impact of dyslexia on health, safety, and mental well-being, as well as the resources available for individuals and companies to optimise support and guidance.
The simulation exercises were especially helpful in gaining a better understanding of the hidden challenges faced by individuals with dyslexia and how to create a more inclusive environment. People without dyslexia were amazed to experience a little of what it is to be dyslexic for themselves, and those with dyslexia were heartened to see their experience highlighted.
The session was pacey and fun. It absolutely achieved what we had hoped: managers felt they had better understanding and tools to help them, and people with dyslexia felt heard.
I highly recommend this Dyslexia Awareness Presentation to anyone looking to increase their knowledge and understanding of dyslexia and specific learning differences. Thank you, Dyslexia Matters, for an informative and interesting webinar!
