Dyslexics five times more likely to be unemployed, finds campaign

New campaign launched by dyslexics to spread awareness

The first dyslexia employment agency in the UK – which is run by dyslexics – has launched a campaign to spread awareness of the employability issues many dyslexic people are facing, with four in 10 currently unemployed.
Exceptional Individuals founder Matthew Boyd, who is dyslexic himself, was recently featured on BBC news after launching Great Minds Think Different, a new campaign to celebrate the creativity, skills and enterprise of young dyslexic people.
The campaign is designed to change the conversation around dyslexia, challenge the broken systems and misconceptions around it in order to reflect the incredible work that’s being done by dyslexic people in the UK.
