A Collection of Poems on Dyslexia


‘Dyslexia – The Inner Hurt’, a collection of poems on dyslexia

During ‘Dyslexia Awareness Week’, in November 1995, I took the opportunity of organising a competition on Dyslexia.  The competition was for all children up to 16 years of age. Information was sent to every school and playgroup in the Swindon area. My aim was to promote a greater understanding of dyslexia and how it affects people.
