The sixth edition of Advantage Dyslexia, Madras Dyslexia Association’s flagship event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Madras South, was held on Sunday.
The week-long fest, which displays and identifies special talents in children with dyslexia, will have competitions such as kolam, storytelling, dance and music.
Chief guest and president of Rotary Club of Madras South, C Srikanth, inaugurated the fest and said, “Many think that children with dyslexia are slow learners and not motivated in school.

In her experience, she has noted that dyslexia is overtly seen in children between classes five and six, and can cause dropouts between classes nine and ten.
