The fourth annual Dyslexia Awards will be taking place on Saturday 23rd November 2019!
Celebrating dyslexia in Shropshire; the Dyslexia Awards celebrates, highlights and promotes the so often overlooked positives of dyslexia, and positive dyslexics!
Dyslexia Awards was founded by Elizabeth Wilkinson in 2015, Elizabeth is dyslexic herself, and had been dreaming of starting the dyslexia awards for over a decade, she has been working tirelessly since 2000 promoting and championing her fellow dyslexics. Founding The DDC in 2007 and the original Dyslexia information Day (DiD) in 2008. Elizabeth is determined to counter balance negative publicity and shame so often associated when receiving a dyslexia diagnosis. Elizabeth continues to raise public awareness of dyslexia and to encourage others to celebrate and promote their strengths, attributes and skills!
Very aware that all to often dyslexics have skills and strengths that are overlooked in mainstream education and the work place; the Dyslexia Awards are an ideal opportunity to promote and celebrate those overlooked strengths, and for the positiveness to be in the spotlight for a change, the awards are a positive and enjoyable way to effect change.
Elizabeth says “…I feel it’s really important that people understand, as dyslexics we have a lot to offer the world”
