Dyslexia North East was formed in November 2005, by a group of teachers and parents, and others interested in dyslexia and related conditions.
We began organising Meetings with speakers on topics of interest in 2006, and slowly built up contacts with parents, teachers and those helping children with special educational needs, particularly dyslexia.
Funders and Supporters
Dyslexia North East is very grateful for all the generosity of its members and funders.
We need to find more funding if we are to deliver more services and help for dyslexics of all backgrounds and cultures.
A Big Thank you to the REEDs Grassroots fund for a grant from the Community Foundation. This generous grant of £3,000 has helped to provide administrative support for Dyslexia North East, and so enable us to offer more services.
Also, we are indebted to the Big Lottery Fund for a grant of £8,865 to enable us to purchase IT equipment and ipads for use by children and adults with dyslexia.
