Service description:
The Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association (NDA) is a county- wide charity, providing services for those with dyslexia. The NDA is affiliated to the British Dyslexia Association (BDA.) and forms part of a network of almost 50 local Dyslexia Associations throughout the UK.

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

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

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

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

Helpline: 01604 530959 (answerphone only)

They 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)

Other support can be obtained via their helpline, email, or direct line or on our website, and through their managed register of specialist qualified tutors, assessors and screeners.
