What is this open meeting?
Dyslexia is a part of who you are; you do not ‘grow out’ of it. Being dyslexic means having different strengths and certain traits, and presents some challenges particularly in a school environment. Everyone needs to learn to recognise their strengths and capitalise on them, whilst accepting their difficulties and learning how to overcome them.
