Dyslexia Trust to host dyslexia awareness programme

Kolkata, Dec 17 : Breaking through Dyslexia (BTD), which is an initiative of the Dyslexia Trust, on Monday announced a three day international conference on Dyslexia awareness 'Dare to Win' to be held from Dec 17 till Dec 19 here.


Dyslexia Trust provides a scientific understanding of students with a specific learning or language disability.

The conference will address the full scope of dyslexia and related difficulties with the objective to create hope for the child and parent, officials noted.

Speaking about the disease, senior consultant & psychiatrist at the Mental Health Foundation, Kolkata J. R. Ram said, "Dyslexia is something that is not in public concern. There is a lack of awareness not only regarding the fact that it exists but all of us including the professionals, who have a vague notion about what dyslexia is."

"The main difficulty lies when parents and teachers fail to recognize the actual problem with dyslexia patients. They should understand that the child is not lazy of chucking their responsibility. This is a huge battle to understand," he added.

Indian filmmaker and theatre director Suman Mukhopadhyay released a handbook on dyslexia along with the preview of his short film on the subject titled, 'Wings to Fly'.

"The school system must be prepared to give the facilities and entitlements these children need because without that we can't fight with Dyslexia. We need to look as the child as an individual and as a personality. We need to go beyond our immediate circle to serve these children," said Reena Sen, Executive Director of the Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy, Kolkata.
