DyslexicProfessional.com - Dyslexia at work

So what is this site about?

I’ve been thinking about how to best use the site.  Having never written one of these before, I suspect it will evolve over time… certainly the blank page appears as daunting as usual… so I suspect there will be a lot of editing before I get this right!  Equally, I have relatively little time so progress will be slow…

However, the current plan is to include a number of different sections:

  • A blog – an occasional “day in the life” posting that tries to discuss a topic of interest to dyslexics in a pratical way
  • Dyslexia general information – some general information for those who may have stumbled on this site
  • Resources and ideas – a section setting out resources and ideas that I have found helpful
  • Dyslexic success – a section devoted to those who have succeeded despite or perhaps because of their dyslexia
  • Links to organisations – organisations specialising in this area, who may be able to provide further information or help

I’m sure this will change.  At the moment, I am writing this for myself – but if others do read it and have ideas, please post.
