Specialist teachers, support organisations and even a comic publisher will be at the dyslexia information day at the Enginuity museum in Coalbrookdale from 11am to 3pm.

The event has been organised by Shropshire teacher Elizabeth Wilkinson, who also founded the county's dyslexia awards which were held for the first time last year.

The event offers advice and guidance, and local dyslexics will be on hand to talk to visitors about being dyslexic and their experiences.

There will also be local business owners some selling goods.

Coffee, tea and cakes will be on sale, with all profits going towards craft events for people with dyslexia.

Miss Wilkinson said she was particularly excited that Rossie Stone of Dekko Comics would be attending for the first time, adding that she hoped he might feature the county in one of his future comics.

Admission is free, although there are pay-and-display charges for parking.
