Helping dyslexic people of all ages by providing information and support
What is dyslexia?
Recent research has proved that dyslexia is certainly a difference in the way the brain works.
Dyslexics have strengths in areas other than literacy. They may be exceedingly creative and artistic, excellent engineers and scientists or have great entrepreneurial skills (including the 'gift of the gab').
Dyslexia does not 'go away', but strategies can be successfully learnt to overcome the problems it causes. If not helped, these people do not reach their full potential. What a waste of this country's most precious resource!
There are many reasons why a child does not succeed at school, and dyslexia is just one of them. A professional diagnosis is always necessary.
The British Dyslexia Association has launched a comprehensive guide for parents on the legal rights of their dyslexic child at https://www.bdadyslexia.org.uk/news/british-dyslexia-association-launch-comprehensive-advice-for-parents-on-the-legal-rights-of-their-dyslexic-child
