Dyslexia Action 

We provide support, assessments and tuition through our national Learning Centres, through online distance learning and in schools across the country, alongside supporting educators and employers through the provision of resources and training. We also undertake research and campaigning to improve the lives of those affected by dyslexia.

Help & Support

We offer assessments and screenings, tuition and short courses, as well as free advice sessions and useful information to ensure you get the right help and support.


Our Centres

Our network of Learning Centres, based around Great Britain, offer direct support to children, young people and adults as well as parents, teachers and employers.


Our training courses offer educators, employers and parents the knowledge they need to better support people with literacy and numeracy difficulties, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.


Learn how this online, second chance literacy development programme, can support your students in the development of their reading, spelling and writing skills.
