We’re here to empower Dyslexic Thinking

Our purpose

We’re a global dyslexia charity, led by successful dyslexics. We’ve built the world’s largest community of dyslexic people and our allies. Our purpose is to help the world to understand the value of Dyslexic Thinking.

We believe in the game-changing power of Dyslexic Thinking. After all, everything from the lightbulb to the iPhone, the plane to the car, was invented by Dyslexic Thinking. And our skills are vital in shaping the future too.

Our mission

Our mission is to train every school and workplace in the world to empower Dyslexic Thinking with free training. Aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we aim to achieve this by 2030.

Our award-winning campaigns, inspirational events, and game-changing partnerships have redefined dyslexia. In 2022 this resulted in Dyslexic Thinking being added as a skill on LinkedIn and as a noun in the dictionary.

21st century definition of dyslexia

Dyslexia influences as many as 1 in 5 people and is a genetic difference in an individual’s ability to learn and process information. As a result, dyslexic individuals have differing abilities, with strengths in creative, problem-solving and communication skills and challenges with spelling, reading and memorising facts.

Generally, a dyslexic cognitive profile will be uneven when compared to a neurotypical cognitive profile. This means that dyslexic individuals really do think differently.

Traditional benchmarking disadvantages dyslexics, measuring them against the very things they find challenging.
