Marlborough and District Dyslexia Association has launched a new website, containing help, advice and information about the group.
The MDDA is a small, independent charity which has for the last 22 years supported local schools, hundreds of dyslexics and their families.
The objectives of the association are to encourage the identification of dyslexia and to advance the education of children and adults with the condition, through providing:
- A confidential helpline for advice and support – 07729 452143
- A dyslexia surgery on the second Saturday of each month (except August) with a dyslexia specialist in attendance
- A free loan service for hundreds of books, games and other resources
- Contacts with other professionals and organisations
- Two newsletters per year for members
- Two dyslexia-related lecturers per year
The association is run by a small but dedicated committee of parents, teachers and dyslexics who seek to promote awareness of this specific learning difficulty, to advance the education of dyslexics and help them to reach their full potential in life.
