About us

Here at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, we support people with dyslexia to bring about positive changes in their lives.

We share information and advice to change attitudes towards dyslexia.
Since 1971, we have been removing barriers to learning and life for children, young people and adults with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties by providing expert, personal and life-changing support.

We also support parents of dyslexic children, their teachers, and employers of dyslexic staff.

Our team of specialists provide help through dyslexia assessments, consultations, 1:1 tuition and training as well as a variety of courses, workshops, information and advice.

Following our founder Helen’s mantra, to help people regardless of their ability to pay, we provide free support to many individuals from lower-income backgrounds.

We operate from our Surrey Centre and through a growing number of regional teams.

Together we inspire people to believe in themselves, achieve their goals and succeed on their own terms.
