Welcome back to Part 2 of our discussion about Dyslexia.
We knew it was a big topic when we looked into it, and we have learned some fascinating insights about the brain, and also how Dyslexia is regarded – and – understanding is improving in the workplace, schools and universities, and to some extent employers.
Slowly but surely people are less inclined to categorise someone who is Dyslexic as stupid or lacking intelligence, but there is still some work to be done.
In this podcast, Pennie and Ruth take the Dyslexia screening test… and there was a few surprises (and some not so surprising) results.
Here are the links we mention in the show,
