2018 Dyslexia Awards WInners and Runners up
2018 Opening Speech
About Dyslexia Awards
Founded in 2015 by Elizabeth Wilkinson (Dyslexic & Autistic) with the aim of raising dyslexia awareness and the positive aspects of dyslexia!
Winners of the third annual dyslexia awards were announced at the awards and celebration evening, at Enginuity Museum, Coalbrookdale, on Saturday 10th November 2018.
With the exception of one award these awards are open to nominations of folks who are from or living in the Home County of Shropshire only that means Shropshire including Telford & Wrekin!
All too often the focus of dyslexia is negative, focusing on what dyslexics ‘can’t do’ or the things dyslexics ‘struggle’ with.
Well, Dyslexia Awards aims to turn that on its head by focusing on strengths, positives and achievements of people in Shropshire.
Elizabeth says: “We dyslexics have a lot to offer the world and the Dyslexia Awards aims to highlight and celebrate these strengths and positives, as well as create positive Shropshire role models!”
information about the 4th annual dyslexia awards dates will be released in the first quarter of 2019…
There are 9 awards open for nominations.
We aim to showcase the diverse skills of local dyslexics by having a wide selection of awards.
The Education awards aim to celebrate those educators who: ‘get’ dyslexia, who understand and work tirelessly to encourage and inspire their dyslexic students.
Dyslexia Awards is yet again bowled over by the number of sponsors who said ‘count us in for next year’ at this years awards, before the evening was even over – huge thanks to you all – you are all amazing – Thank you so much!
