Foundation to mark children’s day
Dyslexia Foundation has announced activities lined up to mark this year’s Children’s Day celebration and create more awareness to support children and persons struggling with dyslexia.
Dyslexia, the most common learning disabilities worldwide, is a brain disorder or condition that affects the reading, writing and comprehension of a child.
Chairman of the Board Trustees, Mr. Ben Arikpo, said the gesture was a continuation of the Foundation’s efforts to empower families and caregivers to manage the affairs of people with dyslexia.
He urged families to register their children on the Foundation website for the event holding on May 27 at the Foundation office in Lekki, Lagos.
Executive Director of the foundation, Mrs. Felicia Arikpo, urged families whose children exhibit signs or symptom of dyslexia to bring them to any of the three centres in Lekki and Ikeja (Lagos) and Abuja, advising them to seek professional assistance, and not to assume or apply wrong medication.
