Free online Lunch & Learn sessions for workplaces: Dyslexia – its effects upon your employees and their families
This free online session introduces your team to the issues surrounding dyslexia, a condition that affects more than 1 in 10 people in the UK.
A Lunch & Learn session is likely to appeal to many people across your organisation, whether they have a basic awareness of dyslexia or not. Dyslexia is a hidden disability and is recognised as a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010. As such, participation in this interactive session will demonstrate your commitment to inclusive practice within your team. It is relevant to all workplaces, across all sectors.
The session’s aim is to provide you with a clear understanding of dyslexia and its effects upon colleagues, including strengths in areas like problem-solving and ingenuity as well as challenges commonly experienced with literacy-based tasks and processing information. Interactive elements help simulate some of the experiences of dyslexia to the audience. Also, it gives an opportunity for those attending to share their own experiences of dyslexia if they wish.
The session is free. However, we ask you to consider making a donation of your choice, to further our objective of helping more people who could not otherwise afford it, to access the help they need.
Lunch & Learn sessions are normally an hour long, including time for questions and answers, but can be adapted to suit the needs and availability of your staff.
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for doing the presentation on Monday. It was well received and got some good discussion going which is exactly what we want. People particularly liked the practical challenges at the end which really brought home some of the challenges dyslexic people face.” Simon, British Land
