This is much better than the DF employers guide, really liked the extra-focus on social skills and the comparison with Autism Spectrum traits. Though I think more focus on the things that dyspraxics are often very good at would be good.

Thanks, I have still not read it but posted a link on Twitter and was criticised for saying there are some with criticisms of it.

Happy to say the guy from the GMB who initiated the production of this is now a D&L contributor 😊

I still haven't read it - my grouse is that it appears to just be for dyspraxics so if on a day I was focusing on dyslexia issues I would not turn to it.

Is there a guide specific to dyslexia you could refer to though?

There is not one that I know of but maybe check trade Union websites and perhaps also thw British dyslexia Association.

there are quite afew organisations that I see who publish about dyslexia but I cannot bring to mind specific work related information.
