It is estimated that 10% of people in the UK over 16 have dyslexia to some degree.
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that primarily affects reading, writing and spelling but may also impact on memory, organisation, mathematical and sequencing skills. Dyslexia affects people of any age, intelligence level and background, and difficulties vary from slight to severe.
Many adults do not know that their difficulties may be the result of dyslexia or that they have learning problems, especially if they have developed strategies to hide or cope with their difficulties. It is never too late to get help – we work with you to develop your potential and fulfil your goals.
If you think you or a loved one may be dyslexic, you can contact us to discuss your concerns either in person at one of our centres or over the phone.
We provide individual support as well as small group support for adults, including working with the unemployed, university undergraduates, self-employed, parents and employees for workplace learning. We teach adults of all abilities by developing individual learning plans to address their specific needs.
Funding may be available from Access to Work or our Learning Fund which supports adults who would otherwise be unable to afford our help.
