Dyslexia Action House, 10 High Street, Egham, Surrey, TW20 9EA
Dyslexia affects approximately 10% of the UK population. The social impact of dyslexia is extensive. If you cannot learn to read, you cannot read to learn and everything we do at school and throughout life requires us to have the skills to be able to access written information.
Above and beyond the difficulties and barriers dyslexia presents, is the damage that low self-esteem can have, which is life-long. But with the right help and support, literacy and numeracy difficulties, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties need not be a barrier to education, employment and fulfilment.
Dyslexia Action exists to ensure that those affected get the help and support that they need.
