Welcome to the discussion area of the Dyslexia Positive website. The idea is that anyone interested in dyslexia can join in a discussion based on themes initiated by a member of the Dyslexia Positive team. Please participate by commenting on the articles and feel free to ask any questions!

Dyslexia Positive has devised 4 checklists (hopefully the first in a series) for discussing the possibility of dyslexia (both strengths and difficulties) for people working in particular employment fields.  We hope this will be useful for individuals, for employers and for practitioners wanting to raise awareness or go through an initial screening with a client.  You are free to use these resources, so long as you acknowledge Dyslexia Positive as the source.   Please comment on what you think of these documents, and give us feedback if you use them.

    Thanks Sue for uploading these. I think they are really helpful in encouranging adults to look at the strengths of dyslexia, as well as some of the difficulties they may encounter in the workplace.
    I like the colour coding, but think I will make the final sections darker if printing off for use.

    These are a wonderful resource for organisations to support their  policy on Specific Learning Difficulties.
