Dyslexia Scotland is the voluntary organisation representing the needs and interests of dyslexic people in Scotland. Our Mission Statement is “To inspire and enable dyslexic people, regardless of their age and abilities, to reach their potential in education, employment and life.”
We provide national services such as a Helpline (Monday - Thursday, 10am - 4.30pm, Friday 10am - 4pm 0344 800 8484 or firstname.lastname@example.org), assessor, tutor and employment services, information and advice, awareness-raising training, conferences, seminars and road shows, and a range of resources aimed at influencing national positive change.
These include our online ‘Addressing Dyslexia’ toolkit for all teachers; free online Dyslexia and inclusive practice modules; 'Supporting Pupils with Dyslexia in Primary Schools', ‘Supporting Dyslexia Pupils in the Secondary Curriculum’; ‘Dyslexia at Transition’ DVD and ‘Count Me In’ teaching resource. We have also co-produced a DVD called 'Dyslexia,Learning & You' for prisoners with learning difficulties.
Based in Stirling, we have a network of volunteer-led branches that provide a range of activities across Scotland, from as far afield as the Hebrides to Dumfries, as well as 3 adult networks.
