A Collection of Poems on Dyslexia


Introduction to ‘Dyslexia – The Inner Hurt’, Collection of Poems on Dyslexia

During ‘Dyslexia Awareness Week’, in November 1995, I took the opportunity of organising a competition on Dyslexia – 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.
