Succeedwithdyslexia is a movement put in place by Scanning Pens to promote positivity around learning difficulties. Dyslexia is a well-known disability and Scanning Pens is raising greater awareness to empower more people to succeed. There is more to dyslexia than struggling to read, not to mention the anxiety that comes with working through reading difficulties without them being identified.
Starting 2019, we’re in collaboration with Go Red to help bring dyslexia awareness to the global stage. During October, we’ll be going all red.
The colour red is one that every student with a learning difficulty is used to seeing. It’s the colour of mistakes. But Go Red is taking back the meaning and painting it with positivity. They want to see awareness around dyslexia grow, and in turn, develop the support.

A Word From Our Founders

Jack Churchill, the co-founder of Scanning Pens and #succeedwithdyslexia, believes completely in the potential of people with disabilities. Jack is himself dyslexic and insists a lot of his passion and creativity comes from how his dyslexia changes the way his mind works.
When he started up #succeedwithdyslexia, he said: “For the past few years, we’ve been at the forefront of breaking down barriers for struggling readers. After seeing first hand just how much lives can change with the right support, we believe it is our responsibility to share the expertise we’ve gathered. Instilling reading confidence in someone, regardless of age, has a positive impact on everyone around them. I’m particularly hopeful that #succeedwithdyslexia will help early identification across the world. Nobody should be left unable to access the wonders of literacy.”

What can we do to help?

The #Succeedwithdyslexia website is the result of hundreds of people’s hard work coming together to bring the most refined strategies for people with learning difficulties. Whether you’re an adult, educator, parent, or student, we’re here to support your needs.

Reading Independence for Children

If you’re a parent of a child with learning difficulties, or know someone that might fit this role, we’re want to help. 

#Succeedwithdyslexia can provide you with the guides you need to nurture the independence and curiosity of your child.

Making Education Easier

Teaching those with individual needs is a challenge in itself. Even with the right training, it can take years to develop the experience you need to manage different needs. We’re pulling all the resources that we’ve gathered together to make your job easier, while providing you with some great assistive technology alternatives.

Promoting Literacy for Professionals

Relying on the help of others is vital in the workplace but having your own independence is key to confidence in your work and yourself. If you aren’t confident with your reading skills, be sure to get in touch.

Supporting Dyslexia

Developing dyslexia support is a key drive of #succeedwithdyslexia. This is where we shine most. Our extensive knowledge is available in a number of different guides and implementation supports you can use.

Why dyslexia?

Dyslexia is the world’s most common learning disability. An estimated 5-10% of the population has dyslexia. Yet there is still a huge global stigma around having a learning difficulty like dyslexia. Even where dyslexia is supported, there’s a lot of assumptions that those with dyslexia are under-performers.
This assumption is inaccurate. Dyslexia is simply when someone processes information differently. Much like many neurodiverse people, there are areas where dyslexics thrive and others they may struggle.
In general, dyslexics have difficulties when reading. This can range from getting caught on the occasional word to almost complete illiteracy. Dyslexia is a case by case basis that has different solutions for each individual. Sometimes assistive technology is the solution, some others may need a more direct approach.
But let’s not forget the many strengths of a dyslexic. Statistically, dyslexics are far more likely to think in pictures and perceive their environment multi-dimensionally. Put simply, they see the world differently. Different can open up a world of opportunity. The vivid imagination of a dyslexic allows for enhanced creativity on average. This innovative approach to the world comes second nature to people with dyslexia.
