Not being understood, the labeling, neglect and the stigma that comes with being ‘a slow leaner’ can drive anyone crazy. Children with dyslexia face higher rates of anxiety and depression because of the way it impacts on their daily activities, education, career and wellbeing. Dyslexia can mess with one’s mental health.

This workshop is aimed to:

  • Explain Dyslexia – what it means and how it affects individual’s mental health.
  • Discuss the psychological/psychosocial effect of dyslexia
  • Help parents/care givers and teachers understand their learners with learning difficulties to avoid what can cause anxiety and depression
  • Share coping mechanisms from successful people who have dyslexia
  • Boosting self-esteem
