What are the main things stopping employers keeping the talents of people with dyslexia in work?

How can we change the way people think about and act towards people with dyslexia, so that the change lasts a long time?

What support do people with dyslexia who have a job need to help them earn more money?

 

We have been asked for views for a national consultation* on:

- How to support more people with dyslexia into work

- How employers, the welfare system and services can work together to keep people in work

We are inviting you to share your views for this consultation.
