Our Vision: A dyslexia friendly society enabling all dyslexics to reach their potential.

Our aim: To support the needs of all dyslexics, by breaking down the barriers faced by people with dyslexia.

Dyslexia affects at least 10% of the population.

The Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association (NDA) is a county- wide charity, which has been providing services for those with dyslexia for the past 30 years. The NDA is affiliated to the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) and forms part of a network of almost 100 local Dyslexia Associations throughout the UK.

The NDA receives no funding, and relies on membership subscriptions and the work of its volunteer Trustees to maintain its services.

We offer information advice and guidance to schools and teaching professionals, parents of children and young people, adults, partners and friends of dyslexics, with our small team of helpline volunteers - all experts in their field, covering all aspects of Dyslexia and other Co-occurring Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)

We also work closely with employers to raise awareness of dyslexia within the world of work, promoting good practice guidelines in becoming a dyslexia-wise employer with help to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to meet the requirements of disability law. Equality Act 2010 (Disability Discrimination Act 1995)

Other support can be obtained on our website and our managed register of specialist qualified tutors, assessors and screeners.
