Learn how Dyslexia Champions can help

Dyslexia Champions™ are volunteers who contribute towards a ‘dyslexia/neuro-divergence friendly’ workplace culture. They answer questions and provide informal support related to dyslexia & other ‘processing differences’ such as dyspraxia & dyscalculia.

They also:

  •  are an ‘approachable, knowledgeable friend’
  • have a positive influence on their colleagues and work environment
  • continue to gain knowledge around the area of interest - dyslexia and associated ‘processing differences’ (dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADD & ADHD)
  • appreciate the need for positive wellbeing - for colleagues and for themselves.
  • work with heart – and they are approachable, knowledgeable and impartial.
  • guide colleagues towards a recognised process of support.

If you have a question around dyslexia, experiencing difficulties of just want to know more about how they can support you, please contact a Dyslexia Champion today.

The Dyslexia Champions™ programme was developed by Janette Beetham from Right Resources. Imperial's Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre uses Janette as one of our expert consultants, and the Dyslexia Champions programme was piloted at Imperial in 2017.
