Young changemakers

All over Scotland, young people are using their skills and talents to help make our country more dyslexia friendly.

Reach for the stars

Adam made a video about Pete Conrad, a dyslexic astronaut. He wants to inspire other young people to be like Pete and ‘reach for the stars’.

Comic art

Harris wrote and illustrated a comic called Detective Jam Jar and Dyslexia Man to raise awareness in his school. He even raised £50 by selling copies and donated the money to Dyslexia Scotland. Thanks Harris!

Harris holds his comic in front of a table-top display stand about dyslexia.

Congratulations to Emily who has graduated from the Stirling University. Emily is now going to be a teacher. She said, “As someone who is dyslexic and faced challenges to my dream of being a teacher, I want to others to see that it doesn’t stop you from reaching your goals.”
