Somerset Dyslexia AssociationSomerset Dyslexia Association (SDA) is run by a group of local, friendly volunteers. We support children and their families, students and adults who are experiencing difficulty with reading and writing. We work to raise public awareness and understanding of dyslexia.

Initially set up by a group of concerned parents 34 years ago, the SDA has grown to be one of the most active local dyslexia associations in England. It is a registered charity, number 289263.

British Dyslexia Association - The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) has been the voice of dyslexic people since 1972. We are a membership organisation working to achieve a dyslexia-friendly society for all.

Made by Dyslexia - We’re a global charity, led by successful dyslexics. We’ve built the world’s largest community of dyslexic people and our allies. Our purpose is to help the world to Learn Dyslexia: to understand it, to value it and to support it.

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.
