Dyslexic Adults: GET INVOLVED!

I mentioned in my previous blog about a dyslexia group that I am a member of on Facebook called Dyslexia Help and Support UK. I’m a huge advocate for the group because I have found them to be very friendly, very helpful and very supportive especially (but not exclusively) towards parents in the UK with dyslexic kids.

Hello Again

Well it’s been almost a year since I last posted a blog on here. I needed a little bit of a time out to think about what I wanted to blog about and how to move forward in a positive way.

#DDChat on Twitter, which I host, has been my main focus the last year or so. It’s become a great little community now with lots of friendly and familiar Tweeters. We’ve a real variety of people that I am so grateful to speak to every week. We continue to chat every Thursday from 8pm UK/Irish time discussing a variety of topics.

Other than that, I’ve been contributing where I can to a fantastic Facebook group. It’s a dyslexia support group aimed towards people in the UK with the soul purpose of supporting parents with dyslexic kids but also dyslexic adults, like myself. There’s no hidden agenda to it, just supporting others, and has a variety of people in the group, including experts in the field. https://www.facebook.com/groups/DyslexiahelpandsupportUK is the group which I really cannot praise highly enough.

I am going to start writing again to the blog more regularly. Thanks for sticking by the blog! You’re all awesome 🙂

Irritability and Head in the Sand

Sometimes I don’t realise just how overwhelmed I am. I think my lack of structure is starting to get me down and making me feel very uncomfortable in myself.

I woke up this morning to a whole load of requests from people to support other people’s projects, write blogs for other folks, do some volunteer work and go to a gig. Read the rest of this entry

Dyslexia and Me: My Ideal App

Having joined in with #AXSChat for the last few weeks, I have been thinking a lot about assistive technology. I also get a lot of Twitter accounts of various apps add and Tweet to me about their product. A lot of them seem quite similar when I’ve looked at them. A lot seem to be aimed towards young learners rather than for adults and adolescents.

I thought I would write a blog about what would make my ideal app for my dyslexia and scotopic sensitivity syndrome as recently graduated mature student and someone who would like to read and write more. I think it would be a ‘super’ app with all the things I’d like in one thing rather in the various I have already, but here goes!   Read the rest of this entry

Dyslexia and Me: Dyslexia at Work

The one thing you will see me campaigning for is support for adults with dyslexia. There are so many charities, groups and parent networks that are pushing for change in schools, but there aren’t enough people (in my opinion) pushing for change in the way adults with dyslexia are treated. We’re kind of left to get on with it! This really needs to change, especially when so many people with dyslexia are unemployed or struggle to find work.  Read the rest of this entry

Question of the Month

This month the poll is a statement that is very close to my own heart. So what do you think?

Discussion: Is there enough support for adolescents and adults with dyslexia? : Dyslexia

via Is there enough support for adolescents and adults with dyslexia? : Dyslexia.

I recently started a discussion on Reddit (which I am completely new to) discussing support for adults with dyslexia. There have been some very interesting responses, so if you have Reddit and want to join the discussion, please do!
