Getting started


Welcome to the Dyslexia Action community forum.

We hope that you see this as a place to share your experiences, hopes, questions, thoughts and frustrations, whether that is as someone who has dyslexia, or someone whose loved one, friend or family member is dyslexic.

So how does it all work then?

Well you can share your stories by posting a blog. A blog is a personal journal or post – post about whatever you want; maybe you want to share what life has been like for you as a dyslexic, tell us about the teacher who helped you through the toughest part or the support you received when you found out your child was dyslexic. We hope that your positive stories will inspire others or help others to realise that even when things are not going well, they aren’t alone – someone, somewhere has been through a similar situation. Snippets from our Dyslexia Action Blog are also available on this site, so do take a look at that.

Raise a question:

Another function of this site is the question tab. Here you can ask the community a question. As with all communities, members will come from a wide range of backgrounds with different experiences and expertise so all input is valuable and important. It is as easy as posting the question that is on your mind, or commenting on an existing question to share your thoughts.

You may also notice we run polls from time to time. This allows you to quickly and easily have your say on our current hot question. If you have an idea for a poll, let us know!

If you have any other questions, please send me a message or post a question and I will do my best to get back to you.

Thank you for joining our community and helping to make it the best place on the web for dyslexia support.

Looking forward to chatting with you!

My son is 7yrs old, he has learning difficulties especially with reading & numbers her gets mixed up and back to front. My son is 'dyslexia' and so am I, but I manage to cope, taught myself to overcome it and have a good job with the Royal mail. I am very concerned about my son, school gives him stupid work he doesn't understand.
