Hello Harriet, and thanks for writing here.
The "Group" talked about here, is the Facebook Group that is run by Delma Huges in the UK. You can get to it by going to this web address:
It can be a bit confusing, because there is that Group above -- and then there is THIS "Discussion Group" page of my own website. And this one does not require joining...
SO perhaps you should also go look at the first one on Facebook, because it's FOR people in the UK
You can also write Delma directly -- go to one of her messages here and click the little envelope right after her last name and that will get you her direct email address.
*** ALSO!! re: your "life with dyslexia", you might really want to have a look at the work of Lynne Weddle.
I will put a summary here below -- and if you want to be in touch with her, her email address is:
Lynn Weddle, Brighton, England is a photographer, photographic artist, and educator, who works with a socially-engaged practice facilitating workshops with vulnerable and marginalized groups in the UK and abroad.
After completing a body of self-portraits five years ago, and after coming to realize the power of making that work and re-enacting situations it evoked about her own childhood dyslexia, she re-visited schools from her childhood, dressed in her school uniform and acted out scenes from her memory.
She now uses the results of this project in schools, colleges, universities and outreach settings with other dyslexics as an opening for self-expression and development.
She also works closely with participants to exhibit the work publicly, and also with many other social groups focusing on the same process, in order to generate a change in public understanding of the condition.
More can be seen on her website:
-- and in its movie about the subject (25MB streaming, but definitely worth the wait!)>
Hope this info helps!
