‘Wort’ reports that on Tuesday, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg and her sister-in-law, Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein, opened the first dyslexia forum of UNESCO in Paris. The Grand Duchess held the opening speech of the forum. In her speech she said that world wide 300 million people are dyslectic.

According to the Grand Duchess, these people are still marginalized. Maria Teresa also pointed out that it depended primarily on the teachers to promote the talents of these people and give them self-esteem and confidence. To emphasize this the Grand Duchess and Princess Margaretha visited the exhibition ‘Creativity is more than just words’.

The main goal of the UNESCO dyslexia forum is make people aware that every person has a right to education and that the values that are discussed must be put into practice. Only in this way dyslexic people can be integrated into society.
