LDA Directory

Local Dyslexia Associations (LDAs) are independently registered charities. They have helplines, befrienders and computer co-ordinators. They hold meetings with speakers and workshops, run courses, and have literature for sale and for borrowing. LDAs know of local facilities for assessment and tuition.

To view a map of Local Dyslexia Associations and find the name of the regional representative, please follow this link.

General Helpliners answer all enquiries, unless there is an Adult helpliner as well.
An answerphone may refer you to a rota duty number. The phone and e-mail may belong to different people. Most of the Helpliners are volunteers using family phones, with limited time, so please respect the times given.


Please note: Local Dyslexia Associations are manned by volunteers and your courtesy is appreciated.
