The majority of dyslexic individuals will, at some point in their lives, experience some form of discrimination due to their brain’s alternative way of processing information.

Join us on this webinar, where Chris will shed new light on the legal side of some of the most common issues faced by people with dyslexia in their workplace. With his help, we will have a look at your rights as an employee, and how your neurodiversity affects these. There will also be a discussion around the Equality Act 2010 and what it means for neurodiverse employees. We will also touch on how to address potential discrimination in the workplace.
