What is Dyslexia?

admin Interviews


“The key for teens and adults is a positive construct of dyslexia, a clear understanding of one’s strengths in learning and how to overcome the weaknesses associated with dyslexia”
– Jodi Clements ADA President

Three charities have got together and organised a FREE Dyslexia Event for Parents, Teachers and dyslexics of all ages.

The Australian Dyslexia Association, Specific Learning Difficulties Australia SPELD NSW) and The Central Coast Dyslexia Association are working together for dyslexics.

Dyslexia is not a disease! The word dyslexia comes from the Greek language and means difficulty with words. Individuals with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling despite having the ability to learn.

Australia is years behind with dyslexia awareness and these kids are often bright yet struggle to read and write just like Richard Branson, Tom Cruise, Albert Einstein, Kierra Knightly and many others.
