Organizations in the United Kingdom have just completed “Dyslexia Awareness Week” and “Right to Read Week” (5-12 November 2007), a coordinated effort to promote understanding of literacy and literacy problems.
One of the foci was dyslexia in the workplace. Many organizations (Adult Dyslexia Organisation, British Dyslexia Association, Dyslexia Action, Dyslexia Scotland, HelenArkell, PATOSS, and Xtraordinary People) ran special sections on their Web sites which discussed the problems experienced in employment by adults with dyslexia.
Other efforts focused on prevention and appropriate remediation.
