United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

As a dyslexic person, you have the same rights that apply to everyone in the world. These are laid out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As a young person, you also have other rights that apply to you that can be found in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.


First of all, have a look at our website for 8 - 18 year olds, Dyslexia Unwrapped.  

Dyslexia Unwrapped has lots of useful stuff like information on:

What is dyslexia?

Learning to drive

Studying and exams

You can also meet our Young Ambassadors and watch videos of other young people talking about dyslexia

There's also a great film on Dyslexia Unwrapped called 'See Dyslexia Differently'.
