‘Dyslexia Unwrapped’ – new website for young people with dyslexia: to be launched on 9 November

Dyslexia Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of ‘Dyslexia Unwrapped’, our new website for children and young people with dyslexia, on 9 November in Edinburgh at Edinburgh’s Central Library.  The launch will be hosted by Edinburgh City Libraries.

This exciting new website, created specifically for young people with dyslexia aged 8-18, will be unveiled or ‘unwrapped’ by several of Dyslexia Scotland’s Young Ambassadors who have been involved in the website’s development. Dyslexia Unwrapped is a separately designed, interactive, age appropriate Dyslexia Scotland website for dyslexic young people, maximising the use of graphics, audio and videos to make it dyslexia-friendly. We listened closely to the views of young people with dyslexia when developing the site, in order to make it their own, dyslexia-friendly online space. 

This website has been developed with funding from the Scottish Government's Children and Young People's Early Intervention Project Fund through the Corra Foundation.

The launch will take place during Dyslexia Awareness Week (6 - 11 November) whose theme ‘Positive about Dyslexia’ will raise awareness and understanding of dyslexia through an exciting range of events taking place across Scotland
