Following a feasability study conducted by the Offaly DAI it has been established that there is a potential need for Dyslexia Association of Ireland workshops in the Irish Midlands, (eg counties Offaly, Laois, Westmeath) for adults with dyslexia.
Members of the DAI, Career Paths and the VEC have been invited to speak on the topic of dyslexia and literacy difficulties in adults. This will include an introduction to adult dyslexia and possible coping strategies. It will also include an outline of the facilities available to adults with literacy difficulties available through Offaly VEC.
There are many reasons for literacy difficulties in adulthood, however Offaly VEC recognizes that dyslexia is a condition which requires specialized assistance. It is therefore proposed that the Offaly VEC, in conjunction with the Offaly DAI introduce a series of workshops for adults with dyslexia in October 2011.
As such we invite interested parties to attend this meeting. Light refreshments will be available
