Teach a friend to read is our campaign coachbook.

Libby Coleman is a retired high school principal, prison literacy teacher and special needs lecturer.

Aged 6 she taught her older sister who is dyslexic to read.

Combating illiteracy through paired reading teaching has been her life-long passion ever since.

Nick Ainley is a retired Mencap chair and manager of homes for adults with learning disabilities.

By breaking tasks into their smallest components he taught one of his clients who was paralysed down one side to tie his shoelaces with one hand ! Small steps is a key feature of the reading programme.

Promoting women's education with reading as the essential first step is his abiding passion.

Marcus Tate is a photography graduate who works in the industry.

With Libby, Nick and the campaign champions and friends he aims to change attitudes towards dyslexia: reminding people that geniuses like Einstein, Picasso, Beethoven and Hans Christian Anderson were dyslexic,

and above all showing the world that people with dyslexia can learn to read.
