The British Dyslexia Association Helpline is a national helpline service for people with dyslexia and dyscalculia and those who support them. It offers free, confidential, impartial information and signposting. We receive calls and emails from parents, students, adults with dyslexia, teachers, employers and professionals from a range of organisations.
It is through Helpline that dyslexic individuals can share their views about the support that is available. This may raise issues which, while personal to them, may well be affecting other people with dyslexia. All of this helps the BDA to take issues forward to influence policy, decision-makers and politicians.
