Dyslexia North East seeks to promote knowledge, skills and understanding of dyslexia. To inspire and support dyslexics and enable them to achieve their full potential.
To create a Society that celebrates Difference!
Dyslexia North East is a membership organisation affiliated to the British Dyslexia Association. In January 2018 membership was offered at no cost making Dyslexia North East accessible to all and removing financial barriers where possible. The Charity provides outreach work to raise awareness, assessments to diagnose dyslexia, learning support to educate, workshops to provide knowledge and information to parents and adults. Dyslexia North East was founded in 2005 with a small group of volunteers. Over the years the Charity has grown due to high demand for its services and now has offices in Meadowell, North Shields with a small staff and volunteer team.
