Today, an estimated 1 in 10 Victorians have Specific Learning Difficulties (SLDs), including Dyslexia. Ultimately most live happy, meaningful lives, yet there are many children who are unable to reach their learning potential. Life with a SLD/Dyslexia can be really tough. Low self-esteem, disengagement and/or leaving school early is common - all with negative lifelong consequences. As a community, we have a shared responsibility to support these individuals and their families. Together we can make a difference!
We need your help, so we can help Victorians of all ages with Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties to reach their learning potential.
As the peak body in Victoria for individuals with Specific Learning Difficulties, we believe there is phenomenal potential for positive change in Victoria’s schools and workplaces if these children can learn in a way that suits them. For over 48 years, we have served to provide support and assistance to help them through their learning journeys. Our services include but are not limited to:
1) Full diagnostic assessments to provide a complete learning profile – strengths, deficits - a road map to guide what will work.
2) Capacity building workshops for teachers; allied health professionals; parents; teenagers.
3) Information/Advice services – for Government, parents/students; professionals.
Support and learning arise from accurate and timely understanding. This is our shared challenge.
