The Adult Dyslexia Centre was set up to promote the positive aspects of dyslexia and help individuals to overcome those negative aspects that can create problems in all areas of life including the workplace, which can lead to stress and absenteeism.
Dyslexia is recognised as a disability under The Equality Act 2010, which states that reasonable adjustments must be made to accommodate a disabled employee. Employers need to know what is required of them, by law, and employees need to understand what can be done to help them maximise their contribution and be of value to their employer.
