#DDChat – Weekly Twitter Chat [Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia]

What is #DDChat?

For almost a year now, I have been hosting a chat on Twitter called #DDChat. It started off as a monthly thing and only discussing dyslexia, but over the months it has developed and become a weekly event where we discuss dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. It’s a very friendly worldwide community of neurodiverse people, experts and support groups.  Read the rest of this entry

I was slightly worried when 8pm came and it all seemed very quiet despite my best attempts at trying to advertise the event on WordPress, Twitter and Facebook. These are my usual places for discussing dyslexia related topics and I wasn’t tempted into ‘spamming’ other social media in hope of getting more people involved.  Read the rest of this entry
