No kid should be left feeling stupid. But with Australian schools failing to diagnose and support dyslexic children, it still happens in far too many of our classrooms.
“We want impact like a nuclear bomb.” When we first met with the Dyslexia Network, our instructions were clear.
Originally formed over social media to support those affected by dyslexia, the group realised how powerful they could be when they caught the eye of Sir Richard Branson – a dyslexic himself.
Pronounced ‘Code Red’, the new name unites urgency with the idea dyslexics need to decode what they read. Who says dyslexics can’t appreciate a bit of word play?
Now with a stronger brand to campaign for change, Code Read continues to champion the right of every dyslexic to be understood, empowered and given all the opportunities in life they deserve.
