We’re here to redefine dyslexia

Our purpose

We’re a global charity, led by successful dyslexics. Our purpose is to help the world to understand, value and support dyslexia.

We believe in the game-changing power of Dyslexic Thinking. After all, everything from the light bulb to the iPhone, the aeroplane to the motor car, was invented by a dyslexic mind. And our skills are vital in shaping the future too.

Our mission

Our mission is to train every teacher and help every workplace to spot, support and empower every dyslexic mind. This mission is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we aim to achieve this by 2030.

To help educators, we’ve partnered with Microsoft to offer free, online, training with strategies from the world’s leading dyslexic schools. To help workplaces, we’ve created guides to empower Dyslexic Thinking in every workplace.

 

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.
