learning difficulties: dyslexia & adults
comprehensive information for dyslexia
Many adults who have dyslexia have never been diagnosed as being dyslexic. Dyslexics often have major problems in a work environment, filling in forms etc., because they try to hide the problem.
Code of Practice for Employers
The BDA Code of Practice for Employers is a guide for employers on supporting employees with dyslexic difficulties. This includes guidance on recruitment, written tests, training, promotion, appraisals and disciplinary procedures, performance and assessments, reasonable adjustments and an employer’s obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act.
This is an invaluable publication for all employers, particularly HR, Personnel and Occupational Health departments, and employee representatives including unions and legal advisers.
The Code of Practice for Employers is available by calling the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) on 0845 251 9003, priced £10 plus postage and packaging.
