We want to congratulate the Associazione Italiana Dislessia (Italian Dyslexia Association) for a succesful Dyslexia Awareness Week. With its 80000 members they managed to pull together over 300 events all over Italy. Impressing numbers!

We have a busy Dyslexia Awareness Week planned here in Ireland. Lots of awareness raising using the media (interviews on radio and TV), as well as a series of information seminars and events over the course of the week. We are also active on social media, in particular Facebook and Twitter, and will share the EDA’s awareness week logo and hashtags in our messages this week. We have also started a social media campaign using the hashtag #iwishyouknew where people share what they wish others knew about dyslexia – here’s an example from one of our ambassadors: http://www.dyslexia.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Jane-McGrath-iwishyouknew.mp4.
Further details on our awareness week activities are on our website: www.dyslexia.ie/dyslexia-awareness-week-2016
Wishing you all a successful and eventful #EDAdyslexiaweek
British Dyslexia Association
The British Dyslexia Association held their dyslexia awareness week under the theme of “Dyslexia matters”. They chose to look at the way it matters not just to those with dyslexia but everybody.
