Dyslexia Awareness Month (October 2021)
October 2021 has been proclaimed as “Dyslexia Awareness Month” by Minister of Education Cliff Cullen.
“The Learning Disabilities Association of Manitoba estimates 10-15 per cent of the Canadian population struggles with a learning disability. Up to 80 percent of children with learning disabilities have difficulty learning to read.
Dyslexia Awareness Month acknowledges that schools, families, and communities need to better understand dyslexia and its impact on learning and well-being.”
