The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust

The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust is a collaboration of voluntary and community organisations involved in promoting improved practice and outcomes for children with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties.
 

Our work includes:

  • Providing advice and information to government,
  • Signposting to parents, teachers, and local authorities about training, interventions and research,
  • Providing reliable information to parents, teachers, schools and the wider sector
  • Supporting organisations to provide best practice.

The Trust aims to ensure that in order for children with Dyslexia SpLD to succeed in school there is:

  • A focus on high quality teaching practices by all teachers
  • Access to specialist teachers and resources
  • Early intervention and early action for those at greatest risk of failing
  • Acceptance of the importance of Dyslexia/SpLD as a major contributor to educational under achievement and a strong risk factor for limited life opportunities
