WATCH THE FILM BELOW
This short film, Mical, is important if you have children, family and friends who suffer from dyslexia. I produced this film to create awareness of dyslexia and its life-damaging effects still permeate through our society and have not been addressed properly.
"15 to 20% of people have dyslexia but few are identified at school. Overall, 53% of (2,029) prisoners at Chelmsford during a research project were diagnosed as having dyslexia"
Our aim is to get 100,000 signatures for a petition which we will be starting, to ensure the issue to be debated in the House of Commons and hopefully, a change to the education system will come about it; to have one dyslexia specialist teacher in every school in the United Kingdom and that children are assessed for dyslexia at school by the age of 6.
You will have the opportunity to play your part by telling friends about the film and signing the petition to make a positive change.
