Story

Representing the 10% that experience dyslexia.
Introduction

The British Dyslexia Association is the voice for 10% of the population that experience dyslexia. We aim to influence government and other institutions to promote a dyslexia friendly society, that enables dyslexic people of all ages to reach their full potential. We campaign to encourage schools to work towards becoming dyslexia-friendly; to reduce the number of dyslexic young people in the criminal justice system; and to enable dyslexic people to achieve their potential in the workplace.

The British Dyslexia Association provides the only national helpline supporting tens of thousands of people each year. Working alongside our network of Local Dyslexia Associations, we support people of all ages from across the country.
