A Farming with Dyslexia Working Group has been established with three main objectives:

  • Raise awareness of dyslexia to reduce the stigma and promote the abilities of dyslexic individuals which are of great benefit to the agriculture industry
  • Engage with the Scottish Government and other stakeholders to ensure measures to recognise dyslexia among the farming community are appropriate.
  • Ensure systems of communication with regulatory bodies are more accessible for dyslexic farmers and crofters with a choice of delivery options

The members of the working group are:

  • NFU Scotland
  • Scottish Government
  • Dyslexia Scotland
  • The Crofting Commission
  • SRUC
  • SAYFC
  • Forestry Commission Scotland
  • RSABI
  • Dyslexic farmers and crofters
