Dyslexia Awareness Week – 4th to 10th October 2021
We know that Dyslexia is still often misunderstood and can go unrecognised for many years. That’s why, during Dyslexia Awareness Week, Dyslexia Gibraltar will continue to promote a greater understanding of dyslexia. We are asking you to join and support us to create a dyslexia friendly society where everyone is enabled to succeed.
Dyslexia Gibraltar hoped and plans for the week will include;
Monday 4th October – Visiting schools
During the week we hope to visit as many schools as possible and give a short talk about dyslexia to the students and staff present.
Tuesday 5th October – Open Coffee Morning
Our Coffee Morning will be an informal opportunity for the parents to meet with our team and learn more about dyslexia whilst relaxing over a cup and some biscuits.
We are here to not only support parents and children but the teachers too. So we hope to have as many as possible join us for a fun evening where they will find out first-hand what dyslexia is all about.
Wednesday 6th October – SENCO’s Evening
Our support extends to all those working with people with dyslexia and on Wednesday we will invite those who deal with them on a daily basis to an exciting evening on dyslexia.
Thursday 7th October – Parents Evening
For those who couldn’t make the Coffee Morning or just want to come and find out more, we will hold a Parents Evening with specific specialists giving advice parents so desperately need.
Friday 8th October – DYSLEXIA DAY
#GoRedForDyslexia is a global community of passionate individuals, companies, schools and organisations. We want schools and businesses to encourage everyone to go red to raise awareness of dyslexia. Whether you’re GoRed in class, at home, or out and about in the world, we want to see. Please tag us on social media at our different handles.
Get your very own Dyslexia t-shirt
To help you support us we have designed a special red and white t-shirt which you can use for Gibraltar National Day on Sept 10th or/and on World Dyslexia Awareness Day on the Friday 8th of October 2021. The t-shirt can be purchased at Cotton Leisure.
Friday the 8th is the closing date for entries, with this year’s theme being; “Teachers are Superheroes”. The Annual Bookmark Competition is organised on behalf of the Ministry of Culture by Gibraltar Cultural Services and Gibraltar Dyslexia.
Saturday 9th October
We will join forces with Gibraltar Rugby Mini and Youth at their pitch during the morning/afternoon so that we can promote the inspiring work that we do in the local community.
More details on all our plans for the week will be emailed to our members and posted on our social media platform closer to the date. If you want to be kept informed please become a member and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
