Welcome to the Cornwall Dyslexia Association
WE UNDERSTAND DYSLEXIA
We know about its problems
We can offer help
Our aim is to support the needs of dyslexic children and young people in education and adults in the workplace. To achieve this we raise public and professional awareness of dyslexia and campaign for appropriate provision for dyslexics in local schools and colleges, and appropriate support in the employment sector.
We offer advice and guidance to dyslexic people, family and friends, and provide training for those in the statutory or voluntary sector, in business, education or employment services.
