Dyslexia Action is a national charity that takes action to change the lives of people with dyslexia and literacy difficulties.
Dyslexia is a hidden disability that affects approximately 10% of the population to varying degrees. It doesn’t affect intelligence but predominately causes difficulties with reading, writing and spelling. However, it is much more than just a difficulty with reading and can affect an individual in many other ways such as organisation, memory and / or mathematics.
Dyslexia Action is working towards a world where barriers to learning, employment and fulfilment have been removed for people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.
Dyslexia Action seeks to change lives by:
- Offering help and support direct to individuals
- Empowering others so they can help individuals affected by dyslexia
- Influencing change to help individuals affected by dyslexia
