Campaign to help dyslexics

A campaign has been launched to secure a better deal in the workplace for
people with dyslexia.

The British Dyslexia Association got together with business people, trade
unionists and advice agencies to start the campaign, which calls for more basic
skills tutors specialising in teaching people with the condition.

Dyslexics can be highly intelligent and have an excellent grasp of their
expertise, but struggle to put ideas onto paper, said BDA chief executive
Joanne Rule.

"We are bombarded with printed information, but if text is presented in
a dyslexia-friendly way, it will be accessible to everyone."
