We’re pleased to announce a new suite of e-learning courses, designed for dyslexics and available on dyslexic.com.
The new courses focus on teaching strategies for dyslexics and on developing skillsets with the aim of helping users to achieve goals in work, education and at home. Developed by Lexxic experts, these courses offer a training resource with a new level of support and expanded topics.
The courses follow a new approach, introducing the stories of dyslexic people in everyday situations as they take you on a journey of skillset development.

Win with Dyslexia Competition #WinWithDyslexia
In celebration of the launch of these fantastic e-learning courses, we’re running a #WinWithDyslexia competition with some amazing prizes up for grabs!
The winner with the best story will receive a swanky iPad as well as access to the new e-learning courses. We will also be choosing 3 too-close-to-call runners-up stories and they’ll also get access to the iLexxic courses.
We’re asking dyslexics to share with us their inspirational stories of overcoming challenges. Nicola James, Founder of Lexxic, shared her personal story with us as an example:
“My name is Nicola James. My story and the story of Lexxic begins a few years ago with me struggling to deal with the challenges of my own dyslexia. My dyslexia was picked up quite late. I was already at college and I was questioning very much my abilities, doubting myself and feeling uncertain about the future.
My diagnosis was a turning point. It meant I could understand better the difficulties I’d been experiencing and it meant I could get the support I really needed. I didn’t realise at the time but it set my life on a different course. The support I received was so helpful to me in my work and studies. I decided to dedicate my career to helping other people like myself so that they could also overcome their difficulties and have successful careers and more fulfilling lives.
I gained my qualifications in psychology and I set up my own company for this purpose. We began by doing assessments and offering support for people with conditions like dyslexia. And now, a few years on we’re growing and thriving and we’re launching iLexxic, an exciting new online training resource.”
If you’ve got a motivational story that you’d like to share with others, let us know in the form on our competition page. We’re not looking for an essay, simply 200 words outlining your story. We recommend thinking about your journey and letting us know:
• The challenges
• How you faced difficulties or doubts
• Your successes and new possibilities
