Want to hear your experiences….

Are you dyslexic/neurodivergent? Are you a parent/carer for someone who is dyslexic/neurodivergent?

AchieveAbility – a charity which supports neurodivergent (autism and dyslexia spectrums) people in education and employment, have been tasked to compile evidence for the Autism Bill. If this applies to you, or people you know, please complete and/or share. The more evidence we have, the more likely the Bill will be successful.
