Why Bother? Stuart Byrne Dyslexia

Season 3, Ep. 21

Being dyslexic is not a disability it’s a skill. It’s all about how your brain processes things and how you deal with this different way of learning. Stuart Byrne was diagnosed at age 8. In those days not much was known about Dyslexia but he had great support from his parents. Many years on he now leads the Dyslexia Support Group which enhances the services provided here in Gibraltar and offers support to dyslexics, parents, institutions and business to help create a more inclusive community. This podcast is sponsored by Octopus International Business Services.
