Welcome to The Suffolk Dyslexia Association
The Suffolk Dyslexia Association is a small local charity which was formed in 1981. We give information and support to parents of school age children and adults with dyslexia.
Our aim is to ensure that there is a way forward for every dyslexic learner so that he or she receives suitable teaching, help and support.
Our main objective is to help children and adults to overcome the problems of dyslexia and associated learning difficulties and assist them to achieve their potential.
Some of the ways we help:
- Raise public awareness of dyslexia by running events and fundraising activities
- Provide a focus for information and resources
The Suffolk Dyslexia Association committee is made up of volunteers who meet once a month in Ipswich.
We are Excited to Announce
Our Information day will go ahead on Saturday 19th March 2022
