Welcome to Leicestershire Dyslexia Association

The Leicestershire Dyslexia Association (LDA) is a local charity that works within Leicestershire to support and raise awareness of Dyslexia.  We work on a purely voluntary basis and rely on local donations and membership to support our work.

The Association was started in 1985 by a parent  who was interviewed on BBC Radio Leicester asking for advice on dyslexia. Following a tremendous response the Association was established.

We aim to give help and support people with dyslexia of all ages and advise to parents, teachers and employers. The Association can give guidance on assessment, statementing and specialist teaching.

The Association holds Open Meeting with guest speakers and events covering topics of interest to all, please go to our events page for more information

We run teaching workshops every week during term time on Saturday mornings in Leicester. They are run by volunteers with specialist teaching skills, extensive knowledge and understanding of the educational system and those difficulties faced by people with dyslexia and their carers.
