Dyslexia in the spotlight

LIBRARIES in Hawick and Jedburgh are supporting Dyslexia Awareness Week which runs from Monday until Friday.

Exhibitions will highlight reading material and strategies that help with dyslexia.

There will also be computer sessions and sessions with an adult learner worker.

The councillor responsible for community learning Graham Garvie from Peebles commented: “ The library service aims to support learning in the community and the awareness exhibitions will be of help to people with dyslexia, parents, teachers and schools.

“I would encourage people to go along and find out more.”
