Dyslexia Research Trust
Charity number: 1052989
Thousands of bright children and young adults across the UK are not meeting their full potential because they have difficulty in learning to read and spell. The effect this can have on an individual's confidence can be devastating, and they can carry this with them into adulthood. Through special clinics, the Dyslexia Research Trust offers people with a range of learning difficulties - including dyslexia - a way forward. It reassures children and their parents that they are not stupid, and offers practical ways to help ensure they can progress to meet their full potential.
Our mission is to investigate the causes of dyslexia, raise awareness and improve the understanding of the condition. We are passionate about helping individuals with learning difficulties, and do this by: - developing effective treatments through properly controlled research conducted at Oxford University - carrying out visual assessments for children and adults at our research clinics - providing unbiased information about dyslexia; giving lectures on our latest findings to academic and public audiences across the UK and abroad - managing partnership projects on vision, auditory, genetics and nutritional approaches - providing accurate dyslexia assessments to help with examination, support or workplace needs. We want every child in the UK with reading difficulties to have the tools to help them become happier, confident individuals who can read competently. Our aim is to affect government policy decisions so that changes can be made to improve education and training in schools.
