World Dyslexia Awareness Day will be celebrated on 4 October to promote awareness and understanding of dyslexia. The British Dyslexia Association estimates dyslexia to affect 10% of the UK population. Dyslexia is a neurological difference which can cause problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory or organisation, with varying degrees of severity. Common signs include reading and/or writing slowly, confusing the order of letters in words, struggling with planning or meeting deadlines and poor spelling. Some people with dyslexia will also have other problems not connected to reading or writing, including difficulty with numbers (dyscalculia) and physical co-ordination problems (dyspraxia).
