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.
