Minister of Education Kelvin Goertzen has proclaimed October 2020 as Dyslexia Awareness Month. The Learning Disabilities Association of Manitoba estimates 10-15 per cent of the Canadian population struggles with a learning disability. Up to 80 percent of children with learning disabilities have difficulty learning to read.
Manitoba Education is committed to improving literacy and numeracy outcomes for all students in Manitoba, with the hope that by participating in Dyslexia Awareness Month, educators will build upon their awareness and skills to meet the literacy learning needs of all students.
