DYSLEXIA AFFECTS UP TO 1 IN 10 AUSTRALIANS.

DYSLEXICS SUFFER FROM HIGH RATES OF ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION.

DYSLEXICS HAVE A 46% HIGHER RATE OF ATTEMPTED SUICIDE THAN THE REST OF THE POPULATION.

Welcome to Dear Dyslexic. This site has been set up as an open forum to discuss all topics relating to dyslexia and learning difficulties.

For those who are already working, I hope that Dear Dyslexic can provide you with support and information for your situation.
