How You Can Support DAI

Dyslexia is legally recognised as a disability and as such people with dyslexia have the right to have their condition recognised and receive appropriate accommodations.  While awareness about dyslexia is growing, more work is needed to achieve a truly dyslexia friendly society where all people with dyslexia are enabled to fulfill their potential, where every child and adult with dyslexia has access to appropriate identification and support to achieve their full potential in education, training, employment and all aspects of life.

Make one small change …

  • Support people you meet who have dyslexia.
  • Promote understanding and acceptance of learning difference.
  • Attend a DAI course or conference to learn more.
  • Use plain English.
  • Read with your child and talk about what you have read.
  • Join the Dyslexia Association.
  • Volunteer to help DAI fundraise.
