A Swansea based registered charity, we hold open meetings with guest speakers who can tell us about different aspects of dyslexia and practical remedies we can adopt to make life easier. We also discuss dyslexia and the education system and find out what local schools are doing to help.
Coming together as a group also enables us to share other people's experiences, hear of success stories and provide support. We also have a regular newsletter which keeps you up-to-date with our work. Members receive three copies a year of Contact, the magazine of the British Dyslexia Association.
Occasionally we arrange social events for adults and children with dyslexia and for carers and supporters of family and friends who are dyslexic.
Our Helpline - 07702 665 799 is manned by volunteers and is open weekdays between 6pm and 9pm.
