2022 Campaign Theme: InsideOut For Dyslexia

You may know adults and children who find it difficult to understand what they read, write fluently, remember information, multitask, stay organised or prioritise tasks. Do you know these are common signs of dyslexia?

‘Dyslexia’, or, ‘difficulty with words’, is a specific learning difficulty that mainly affects the development of literacy and language-related skills., particularly those required for reading, writing and spelling. Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 people. About 40 million Nigerian children and adults are dyslexic, struggling with literacy and language skills, poor working memory, poor organization and poor concentration amongst others. Yet, with identification and the right support, they are big picture thinkers, highly creative, excellent at idea generation and strong in problem-solving and they make some of the most successful
entrepreneurs in the world.

This October, in honour of Dyslexia Awareness Month, Dyslexia Nigeria is going Inside Out for Dyslexia.
We are taking the most prevalent invisible difficulty in our classrooms and workplaces and revealing it so
that it is seen; and we are holding space for the inner world of dyslexia to be shared through art, videos,
conversations, training, and campaign activities, so that it is understood. These will drive the identification
and support that Nigerians with dyslexia need.

Join us on a journey to increase awareness for and identification of dyslexia in Nigeria
