These web pages aim to provide an employer with the basic knowledge of what to do if an employee knows or suspects that they have dyslexia.

Employers have statutory responsibilities and DDA targets to meet.

Employers will be aware of equality and diversity impact measures and may be striving to gain awards such as ‘Investors In People’ or the 3 ticks for ‘Positive About Disability’ award.

Many people are wary of declaring their dyslexia to potential employers for fear of discrimination.

The web pages below aim to inform that decision in the light of changes to employment legislation.
