Our Mission is to:
Help dyslexic people of all ages
by providing information and
for listening to me and not treating me like a crazy woman."
Mother of 9 year old girl
like to say how much I really appreciate what you did for me, helping sort out
the school, and getting me into college and setting me in the right direction. I
doubt very much that I would be in the same situation I am in now without all
the support you gave my parents and me."

dyslexia into teacher training!
How many people realised that
teacher training courses don't have to include anything about dyslexia?
Time and time again we get teachers bemoaning the fact that they were
not told anything really helpful about it - "We had just a half-day to
cover all special needs", one newly-trained teacher recently regretfully
In 2009, a government-commissioned report, The Rose Review, recommended
that initial teacher training courses should contain a realistic amount
of time on dyslexia/SpLD. The British Dyslexia Association are now
campaigning hard to try to make this a reality, and have set up a
petition on the government website asking for a compulsory module on
dyslexia. If this petition reaches 100,000 signatures this issue will
then be debated in the House of Commons.
The petition only runs for a year, so every signature counts and your
signature could make a difference, enabling future teachers to help
hundreds of thousands of dyslexic pupils. Please DO take the time and
trouble to sign the petition, and encourage all your friends and
family to do the same. It would be great if you could reach as many
people as possible via email,
twitter and Facebook.
