Level։ beginner

About live lesson

Systemic barriers stop people from different backgrounds from getting dyslexia support, so what are the leaders within the space doing? There is a lot of work that needs to be done in order to dismantle racism in our society, and dyslexia often goes unnoticed in these conversations as the intersectional conversation often gets ignored. We hope that this discussion will shed some light on the importance of dyslexia and the anti-racist work that is happening to change the conversation that often excludes all voices.
