She has dyslexia and dyscalculia, and with support from fantastic colleagues and friends, she is campaigning for better service design for people who struggle with numbers. 

Designing for people with dyscalculia and dyslexia

Laura Parker will reflect on living with dyslexia and dyscalculia and using everyday services. And will:

  • show examples of content that causes problems for people with dyslexia and dyscalculia
  • explain how to improve services for people who struggle with numbers 

Dyscalculia is a specific and persistent difficulty in understanding numbers. Dyslexia affects information processing, organisation skills and memory.

About 1 in 20 people have dyscalculia, and 1 in 10 people have dyslexia in the UK. Dyscalculia and dyslexia often co-occur in people.
