Dyslexia – how to spot the signs
Friday 7 April 2017
Howard Chambers, Enablement Consultant
The latest statistics in the UK show that 10% of the population are dyslexic - 4% severely so. In this eye-opening webinar, our enablement consultant Howard Chambers will discuss how to recognise dyslexia in your workplace, and what to do to ensure people can maximise their productivity within their job role. Having been in the accessibility field for over 20 years, Howard will go through the issues individuals face within the work environment and discuss what help is available to them.
How can having dyslexia make individuals feel? And what are the truths and the myths around dyslexia? Many things such as a job role change or promotion can change an individual’s output, and the solutions can be a simple change in the way they work. We’ll be discussing all of these critical points in our upcoming free webinar. Make sure you book your place now to be sent a link to listen in on the day.
