Birmingham Libraries Dyslexia Information Standard
A standard for dyslexia information has now been established in every library.
Birmingham Libraries has formed a partnership with DAB (Dyslexia Association of Birmingham) to establish a standard for access to information and referral for people with dyslexia at every library in the city.In Central Library the information is featured in the Central Lending Library and Centre for the Child, as well as the much more detailed information coverage in the Social Science Library.
Every library has a range of books and information of relevance to parents and young children who need help and guidance with dyslexia.
These resources have been supported by training workshops for 80 library staff to enhance awareness of the varying and particular needs of customers with dyslexia.
A Spotlight pack for children and young people with dyslexia is now available as the latest in a series of information packs designed by Libraries Children and Young People Team for young people with special needs.
Supernova software is available in every library to support people in accessing electronic information.
