Working with employers
Helping you to support your employees
Do you suspect that the challenges faced by a staff member may be due to dyslexia?
Has an employee informed you that they are dyslexic?
Are you unsure what your responsibilities are and how best to support them in the workplace?
Does it appear that their expertise and effort are not reflected in the quality and output of their work?
These are questions, observations and concerns raised by managers, who may feel unsure as to an appropriate way forward in successfully supporting a member of staff. We can offer advice and guidance, not just on how we can help, but signpost to key organisations and other specialists, where it is more appropriate. At White Rose Dyslexia Centre in Sheffield, we are proud to provide an advice and support service to employers who are keen to ensure that they are making reasonable adaptation for employees with dyslexia and dyscalculia.
What you should know
Dyslexia is a recognised difficulty under the Equality Act 2010, the legislation that replaced the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure that disabled people are not treated unfavourably and are offered reasonable and appropriate adjustments and/or support. We can help you to achieve this.
What we can offer
We provide a range of services to employers, including awareness training, dyslexia screening or diagnostic assessments where appropriate, specialist workplace needs assessments, and more. We know that you want to ensure your team has the support it needs, and we are keen to offer you the specialist help you may need to do so.
