'This exuberant interview of Dr Maryanne Wolf contains a lot of very important messages about the reading brain, especially dyslexia.' (Sir Jim Rose)
“I am dyslexic – when I was eight I couldn’t read or write. I was inspired to take part in the TeenTech Awards by some girls in the year above me. I’m so glad I did. Now, I just want to really encourage other children and teenagers not to be limited by labels and follow their dreams.”
In this film, which covers examples of both innovative supports and traditional barriers at work, Meseret Kumculchew describes the impact of dyslexia, her experience at work and the treatment she received from her employer, which led to her claim for disability discrimination.
The valuable work of TAs often goes unrecognised but they are making a real difference to the lives of children in difficult times, writes the former DfE mental health champion.
