Celebrating dyslexia in Shropshire! The Dyslexia Awards aim to celebrate, highlight and promote the positives of dyslexia.
The second annual Dyslexia Awards will take place on Saturday 25th November 2017 at the Ironbridge Gorge’s Enginuity Museum in Coalbrookdale, Shropshire.
Dyslexia Awards have been created by Elizabeth Wilkinson; The Dyslexic Dyslexia Consultant (The DDC). Elizabeth dyslexic herself has been dreaming of running this event for over a decade! Since founding The DDC in 2007 and Dyslexia information Day (DiD) in 2008, she is always keen to promote and champion her fellow dyslexics; and this event is the next adventure to help raise public awareness of dyslexia to encourage others to celebrate and promote their strengths and skills!
Elizabeth is passionate about raising public awareness and help her fellow dyslexics understand that dyslexics tend to have skills and strengths that are often overlooked in mainstream education and the work place; the Dyslexia Awards will be an ideal opportunity for the positiveness be in the spotlight for a change!
Elizabeth says “…I feel it’s really important that people understand, as dyslexics we have a lot to offer the world”
