Entry: E110
Name: Amelia
Age: 9
Champion: My Mum, Dad and Tutor Victoria 

My super hero is three people, my mum, dad and Victoria. 

Mum helps me with my homework, Victoria's and school, and when I need a lucky charm she is there. 

My dad helps me with cheering me up and saying how lucky I am. When he was a kid he got none help with work, so he helps me as much as he can and he is dyslexic too. 


And the last of all is Victoria, she is my tutor she teaches me new things after the class and before. She has so much niceness in her, she is a 5 out of 5. She taught me running writing and more.

Entry: E109
Name: Sophia
Age: 10
Champion: Mum

My dyslexia hero is my mummy. 


She helps me through all of my spelling mistakes and all the things that go wrong but she also compliments me and encourages me on all of the things I do well, like drawing and writing. 

I chose to draw myself surrounded by letters that represent the spelling mistakes that I make.  It is like drowning because everyone else seems to be able to spell so easily except me.   



The dragon represents my mummy saving me from the words.  She helps me by teaching me how  to spell the words I get wrong and by making me split words into syllables, which help me to spell the words easily.  Mummy got me an iPad and showed me how to use assistive technology to write all of my novels.  I write a lot, lot, lot, lot, lot! 

It would be harder if Mummy didn't help me and I would probably give up on my writing. 

The Dragon
The dragon has powers over life and death.
Where you cannot reach, the dragon can.
When the dragon tries, it tries with all its mighty power 
And it does this because of love.
The power pushes evil away with the power of the heart.

Entry: L107
Name: Anita
Age: Adult
Champion: Code Read Dyslexia Network

Champion - From Medieval Latin <campio> meaning fighter. “One who fights on behalf of others, one who undertakes to defend a cause.”

I’ve been working really hard to find a way of expressing this sentiment without it sounding like a cliche but the fact is I can’t decide who my ‘dyslexia champion’ is. I have too many. So I am going to group them all together under the banner of Code Read Dyslexia Network; the newly created NFP that burst to life on Saturday October 14th 2017 with a TV appearance on Channel 9.

When you scratch the surface of this new group you will find its slightly battered and bruised heart : a band of fiery women (mostly mothers of dyslexic children) and a sometimes grumpy but eternally passionate old bloke. These people who are bound by the same heartbreak, the same battles and the same joys, have become my safe harbour. They are my inspiration, my confidantes, my friends. They are, all at once, a soft place to fall, a lightning rod to galvanise me into action and a sounding board for all the fun, frustrations and fears this life with dyslexia brings. 

I don’t know what I’d do without them. They are the very essence of what it is to be a champion. 

Code Read Dyslexia Network are fighters and I stand proudly beside them as we go into battle. 


Anita - mother of a dyslexic child, wife of a dyslexic man child, Structured Literacy Therapist.

My name is Evan and I am 11 years old. My dyslexia champion is my family. My family are my mum and dad. They help me when I don’t understand something and they take me to all the activities I enjoy.

Entry: E084
Name: Lilimae
Age: 12
Champion: Richard Branson

Dyslexia is a journey that some people have to experience and some don’t everyone that has dyslexia learns how do deal with there dyslexia and what works for them in there learning areas.I love having dyslexia it makes me think in other ways people don’t. But I haven’t always loved it. I used to be ashamed and upset because I thought I was dumb but this year especially I have learned to love it. there are lots of kinds of dyslexia I have trouble with spelling and getting things out onto paper but I know that people experience dyslexia in other ways with maths or other areas. One thing that I what to do is educate people that have dyslexia and people that don’t more about it and what it is because when I say to people I have dyslexia they say oh so your not good with numbers but I want to teach people more about it and how amazing it is and how many people have it like Richard Branson who created virgin Australia of course people would have called him dumb or stupid or say you can’t read but he didn’t listen to them at look how amazing he is that is why I look up to him!
