A Suffolk library is to host special events to help dyslexic people and their families during a national awareness week.

The Suffolk Dyslexia Association has teamed up with dyslexia specialist Charmaine McKissock to organise the events at Hadleigh Library.

Held in celebration of National Dyslexia Awareness Week, which runs October 1-7, the events will focus on the needs of family members, helpers and those who would like to know about supporting people with dyslexia.

They include a free and informal workshop on “Helping People with Wobbly Spelling” led by Ms McKissock on Saturday, October 6, from 11am-1pm. The library will also have books on dyslexia as well as questionnaires.

Ms McKissock said reading can be one of the most pleasurable human activities, yet many people with dyslexia were put off out of fear.
