With six issues of the Dystinct Magazine completed, this brings us back to our January issue for 2022 and our first anniversary of launching the Dystinct Magazine. Happy New Year to all of you who have been following our magazine this past year. 365 days have passed since we launched, and despite the ongoing challenges we all faced in 2021, it was a positive year for us, and I’m grateful for this platform to connect with you all.
On the anniversary of our launch, I’m excited to announce that the Dystinct Magazine is now available at public libraries worldwide that offer the Libby app service to their patrons. So please spread the word among your friends and family to access the Dystinct magazine for free through their local libraries.
In this first issue of 2022, I’m thrilled to introduce Flynn Eldridge, our newest team member. 9-year-old Flynn is a talented up and coming journalist. In this issue, you can watch Flynn’s interview with Karen Willson of Simply Homeschool.
We also have lots of evidence-based content and the dystinct journeys of amazing people for you to read and be inspired.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue and all the specialist content covered.
Please get in touch with me if you have any feedback, ideas, or stories to share to change the narrative surrounding learning disabilities.
