APPG - Dyslexia and SpLD (All Party Parliamentary Group)

Sharon Hodgson MP is the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs).

The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) was welcomed and approved as the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) at the AGM on 6th September 2017.

The APPG is made up of MPs and Peers who want to keep up-to-date with issues affecting children, young people and adults with specific learning difficulties, including dyslexia.

The group is committed to understanding learning difficulties, including dyslexia, across the UK and to keeping Government appraised of the situation in schools and education in general. The group, which must meet at least twice during its reporting year, looks at what statutory and non-statutory bodies are achieving in this field.
