Dyslexia Trust

(Registered Charity Number 1039105)

Bristol Dyslexia Centre provides specialist learning and assessment services for dyslexic children and adults. The centre is fee paying, however there are many children and families who are in need of specialist help, but who cannot afford it. The Dyslexia Trust (Registered Charity Number 1039105) was established in 1994, to award bursaries to dyslexics who need help at the centre, but are unable to attend for reasons of financial difficulty.

Our aim is to help dyslexic children and adults achieve their full potential in education, employment and the community by giving them access to specialist assessment, learning and support services.

Who we help: In addition to dyslexia, those attending (who are generally in mainstream schools) often present with other conditions or learning disabilities, for example dyspraxia, dyscalculia, autistic spectrum conditions, attention deficit disorder, speech and language difficulties. They almost always display low levels of confidence and self-esteem. There is generally minimal help available from the local authority unless a child has an Education Health & Care Plan, which can be difficult to attain.
