Supporting Social Inclusion of People with Dyslexia
Large proportion of the European adult population suffering from dyslexia is being unnecessarily excluded from a normative social life including working at high level jobs or even reading the newspaper, depending of the severity of the problem.
The aim of the conference is to use this opportunity and inform policy and decision makers about ICT tools that could mitigate the problem of exclusion. One of these tools is being developing under the project LITERACY (Online Portal for e
- learning and supporting social inclusion of people with dyslexia), funded under the ICT theme in FP7.
Many years ago almost no public building had easy access for handicap people. Nowadays, it is the norm that every public building must take care for easy access. We hope that policy makers help us with the same vigor to achieve our goal that people with dyslexia would have easy access to information.
The event is dedicated to European stakeholders, policy makers, representatives of organizations helping people with inclusion to normal participation in a society and other relevant stakeholders who could participate on the important shift from theory into practice.
