Welcome

About us

The Dyslexia Association is a volunteer organization which was formed in 1990 by a group of teachers and parents concerned for their dyslexic children.  The Dyslexia Association is a Registered Charity.

The aims of The Dyslexia Association:

  • To be a support group for dyslexics, parents and teachers
  • To educate the community about these often misunderstood learning differences which affect so many of our bright and talented children
  • To train as many teachers as possible in methods for teaching dyslexics
  • To work with the Ministry of Education in an attempt to have a Specially Trained Teacher in every school

What we do

Conduct Training Courses in Specific Methods for Teaching Dyslexics.

Refer children and adult dyslexics for screening and specialist tutoring.

The Bursary Fund Committee raises funds to help finance lessons for students whose parents would find it difficult to manage these individualized lessons.

The Association also has a register of Educational Psychologists for referral for assessments.

Conduct Public awareness sessions on Dyslexia and related learning difficulties.

 

A library of books, books on tape and videotapes is available to members.

  • Books on Dyslexia and other learning difficulties
  • Publications:- ‘Perspectives on Dyslexia’, ‘Dyslexia Review’, ‘Annals on Dyslexia’
  • Over 250 audio books for children and adults
  • Cassette tapes of lectures for parents and teachers.

Training

The annual training programme in “Specific methods for Teaching Dyslexics” is run during the July – August school holidays.
