Week of dyslexia

October 1st – 8th 

During the worldwide DYSLEXIA AWARENESS WEEK, HOI Foundation and Dyslexia Font bring the WEEK OF DYSLEXIA. A week full of inspiring online sessions on the broad picture of dyslexia for parents, teachers, experts, employers, children, and dyslexics themselves. The theme of this edition of the week of dyslexia is Dyslexia Creates and Innovates. Throughout history, the ability of dyslexics to think differently has made them “Game Changers”. From the first phone to the iPhone 11 and from the first airplane to tourist space-travel: all these innovations came from different dyslexics. And that’s no coincidence! Dr. Maryanne Wolf (UCLA), Dr. Sally Shaywitz (Yale), and Marc Lammers (former national hockey coach and innovation coach) will talk about the power of “the other brain”, the broad picture of dyslexia, and improving self-confidence. At the end of the program ABN AMRO and we are organizing a business event called “hiring out-of-the-box-thinkers”. Successful dyslexics such as entrepreneurs Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten (TNW) and Hennie van der Most will share their vision and experiences.
