Who are we

The objectives for which the Association is established are:

  • To advance the education and general welfare of children and adults who are affected by dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities
  • To promote awareness and understanding of the problems and needs of people with specific learning disabilities and thereby assist them to obtain diagnosis and treatment so their disabilities may be remedied
  • To persuade appropriate authorities to include in teacher-training courses such instruction as would serve to qualify teachers to recognise in children what may be specific learning disabilities requiring specialised treatment.
  • To promote special courses for remedial teacher training and remedial teacher services.
  • To promote cordial relations between the Association and similar association interested in any aspect of specific learning disabilities.
  • To establish, subscribe or donate to promote, become a member of, support or co-operate or amalgamate with any kindred association or body (whether incorporated or not) whose objectives are similar to those of this Association.
