The annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December was first started in 1981.
The Day aims to promote a better understanding of disability issues with a focus on the rights of persons with disabilities.
Dyslexia is a hidden disability which unfortunately often goes unnoticed by teachers and parents alike.
When we think of disabilities we usually think of those people who are in a wheel chair or who are blind or deaf. We tend to forget about those people who have learning disabilities ,such as dyslexia.
