Description: 
The aims and objectives of the project are as follows: • Helping employers become aware of dyslexia and how it may affect their workforce. The interactive information will help employers to address the needs of dyslexic people by making them aware of the "reasonable adjustments" they may need to make, particularly in relation to workplace training, as well as indicating what benefits dyslexic people may bring to the workplace. The interactive course will dispel myths about dyslexia, indicate how dyslexia may affect adults at work, and help employers to consider how dyslexia may affect their colleagues and customers. • Assisting workplace trainers and those organising training to consider how they can make sure their practices are dyslexia friendly. It includes guidance on producing training materials and training methods.
