Dyslexia Action

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

Please visit the website to find out more about what they do to help.
