Dyslexia Awareness Week and Month

The EDA is delighted to announce the dates of Dyslexia Awareness Week and Dyslexia Awareness Month.

European Dyslexia Awareness Month is in October. European Dyslexia Awareness Week starts from the first Monday of October each year.

2022 – 3rd October– 9th October

Dyslexia Day is on October 8 every year.

As part of our efforts to support collaboration and consensus on an international Dyslexia Day, the EDA Board voted in September 2022 to support the United for Dyslexia campaign which is active and working towards a United Nations declaration of Dyslexia Day on October 8, as well as their turquoise light up campaign. For more details see the OIDEA website We encourage members to support both national and international recognition of Dyslexia Day on October 8.

We hope that this year will be the best ever for raising dyslexia awareness across Europe and the world. Do let us know what you do!
