Why do we want you to express yourself and share your story??

Well we know that people with dyslexia have many personal strengths, however, research has shown that in spite of these strengths, those with dyslexia can face:

  • Higher rates of anxiety and depression
  • are 46% more likely to attempt suicide compared to the general population
  • Up to 40% of incarcerated people have been identified as dyslexic
