Our free, confidential Helpline service provides information and advice about dyslexia and related subjects. There is no charge other than the cost of a standard rate telephone call.


We advise people who have dyslexia and others who work with them or support them.


We will tell you about our paid-for services, if these are appropriate for your needs, but we are also very happy to support people who do not use those services.


We have a small specialist library which includes books about dyslexia and related subjects and teaching and learning resources. There is no charge for browsing in the library, and borrowing is allowed for a small annual fee. If you would like to view the library please call the Helpline in advance to arrange a convenient time.


The Helpline is sometimes very busy and we may be unable to help you immediately. We aim to respond to all messages within 48 working hours.


Our Helpline is open:

  • Monday to Friday
  • 9:30am to 4:30pm

The Dyslexia Association treats information given to its staff in confidence. We will not normally disclose anything you tell us, unless you give us permission to share information with a named person or organisation.


However, it is likely that your information will be shared with colleagues at The Dyslexia Association in order to give you the best possible service and advice, unless you expressly request otherwise.


If you tell us about circumstances in which a person is in danger of serious harm, we may have a statutory obligation to inform the appropriate authorities.
