Dyslexia Guidance for Managers and Employers

This book published by the British Dyslexia Association aims to shed light on this ‘learning difference’ and helps managers & HR professionals on their road to supporting dyslexic employees.  (As dyslexia affects between 10 and 15% of the population every workplace will doubtless have dyslexic employees).

Dyslexia does not discriminate.  It affects people of all ‘abilities’ – and there are countless literate dyslexics across all professions;  lawyers, teachers, engineers, police, nurses …….this learning difference is everywhere.

I think most people would agree – getting the best out of all employees makes good business sense  (and it is questionable as to how many employers really understand the  obligations placed on them by the Equality Act 2010).

This publication is commended by Dr Sylvia Moody a professional much respected in this field and I believe it  is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested supporting individuals in the workplace with the aim of helping them  improve their personal productivity.

Dyslexia in the Workplace – Margaret Malpas

In this book on dyslexia in the workplace Margaret Malpas and her collaborators have successfully condensed the large amount of information now circulating on this subject into a succinct yet comprehensive book. It is written in a clear non-jargony style and is therefore an accessible read for both employers and dyslexic workers.
