About The Dyslexia Association

We provide support and services for dyslexic children and adults of all ages, their parents/families, educators, employers and the wider community. Our head office is in Nottingham and we provide services primarily across the East Midlands (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Northamptonshire) and neighbouring counties.

If you are dyslexic, or think you might be dyslexic, or if you are concerned about another person who may have dyslexia, we can help.
