Do you have dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, ASC or Irlens’ Syndrome?
Could you write a poem or flash fiction on what it is like to have a learning difference?
Your work can be on any aspect of your experience – an incident at school, a strength or achievement, a person who did/did not support you.
If so why not enter for the Dyslexia and Imagination Poetry Competition?
