British Dyslexia Association Helpline

The Helpline is manned by a small team of staff and experienced volunteers.

The BDA Helpline is a national free helpline service for people with dyslexia and those who support them. It offers confidential, impartial advice and information. We receive calls and emails from parents, students, adults with dyslexia, teachers and employers.

It is through Helpline that dyslexic individuals can share their views about the support that is available, and can raise issues which, while personal to them, may be affecting thousands of other people with dyslexia. All of this helps us to take the issues forward to influence politicians and decision makers.
