    I am an adult with dyslexia and am currently going through the final stages of m PhD focusing on dyslexia in vocational education contexts in Australia. It is surprising how much discrimination is out there, even though many think it is their right to discriminate. Discrimination takes many paths and it would be simple to easily fix the problem; however, the problem is with the organisations and the management who set the stage for workplaces and employment. I believe that every person in a workplace needs training; not just those on the floor, working with people who have dyslexia. Training in equity (e.g., those from various cultures, with disabilities and in human rights) must be intended for all management roles in all organisations within Australia.
