Dyslexia Awareness Week

This week is Dyslexia Awareness Week 2012, and in the run up to this there have been a few interesting news articles about dyslexia doing the rounds. Most interesting, in my opinion, is this one from the BBC about the OpenDyslexic font – a free-to-use font designed to help people with dyslexia read online content.

At Souvenir Press we may not design fonts, but we do have a wonderful book called THE GIFT OF DYSLEXIA, which is one of the best-selling education books in the world, providing the practical skills that allow students of all ages to express their innate gifts and succeed in their lives. It has been praised by places including ‘Disability Now’ and ‘Times Educational Supplement’, and is held in high regard by those who have read it, as you will see from customer reviews on the Amazon product page.

“Presented in a dyslexia friendly style… I would recommend this book, both for people with dyslexia and parents and teachers. It describes the problems so well, but even more importantly it radiates optimism and encouragement and offers a programme for success.” – ‘Disability Now’
