Ten years of FREE Dyslexia advice, guidance & information for all ages!

 

In the beginning

The first Dyslexia Information Day (DiD) was 24th May 2008!

founded with the intention of offering free dyslexia advice & guidance to parents, families and individuals, as well as having local service providers under the same roof, so visitors could see for themselves products and services providers available to them locally.

“The idea was and is to empower my fellow dyslexics!”

Elizabeth Wilkinson 2015

Coming from a long line of dyslexics, Elizabeth knows of the struggles that dyslexics can face within the education system, BUT she also knows and has seen first hand the gifts, skills, creativeness and successes that dyslexics do and can have.

Dyslexia information Day has now been running for ten years and this is only possible because of the amazing support of friends & family that Elizabeth has had, there is an army of volunteers who make Dyslexia information Day events so successful!

Founded in 2008 – 2018 sees ten years of events and the 18th event taking place on Saturday 10th March 2018 at Enginuity on Coalbrookdale, well in the Engine shop next door to Enginuity! Bit thanks to Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust for their support for our events!

All our fabulous volunteers are either dyslexic, dyspraxic, dyscalculic, ADHD, autistic/aspergers or have a close link to dyslexia. All exhibitors are there by invite only and are hand-picked by the Dyslexia information Day team.

The evolution of the Dyslexia information Day is a marvel to see; starting as a small free advice guidance and information event, it has become a celebration of local dyslexics and dyslexia.

Dyslexia information Day is now an event that empowers, celebrates and even showcases local dyslexics’ talent, businesses and people. It now ever provides its young volunteers, ‘young volunteer certificates’.

These events offer individuals & families an opportunity to meet local dyslexics, to talk to them about dyslexia, with a range of fabulous volunteers and exhibitors on hand to talk to, including of course Free advice & guidance from the event founder & sponsor Elizabeth Wilkinson.
