Dyslexia Awareness Week Round up!

We’ve been busy, busy, busy here at Texthelp HQ ever since Dyslexia Awareness week, when a little cuddly toy created quite the buzz!

We would like to introduce you to Arty, the Texthelp Monkey. Monkey Pic

Arty was free to a good home with every download of Read&Write Gold 30 day Free trial during Dyslexia awareness week! He proved so popular that we extended the giveaway an extra week! The only thing we asked of the recipients was a picture to let us know he had settled in in his new home.

The theme for Dyslexia Awareness Week this year was “Beyond Words.” In keeping with this theme, we ran a competition to find the most creative of thinkers amongst our customers! We asked that entrants describe how it feels to have dyslexia without using words – the entries could be in the form of music, art, photography or video. We had some great entries but the panel decided that Ruane Cashmore was the worthy winner. I’m sure you will all agree her entry was both eye-catching and thought provoking!

It’s September again – that means back to school in the UK for teachers and students alike. The first day back can be just as daunting and exciting for teachers as it is for the pupils!

Watch this short video to find out how one local teacher, John Emerson from Clounagh Junior High School, feels about the new term and how he plans to integrate Read&Write Gold with his lessons.

Many thanks to John and Clounagh Junior High School for taking part in this video.
