Hertfordshire Dyslexia Association is affiliated to the British Dyslexia Association.
If you live or work in Hertfordshire, the HDA is your Local Association.
We aim to provide:
Meetings provide a good opportunity to share experiences for all dyslexics and for those who have an interest in dyslexia.
The HDA can tell you where to go to get further advice on assessment and tuition and provide you with literature and information on dyslexia.
Lectures, workshops and training sessions– information on these locally and nationally.
Ten percent (10%) of the British population are dyslexic; 4% severely so. Dyslexia is identified as a disability as defined in the Equality Act 2010. Many of the dyslexic people across the UK, whether adults or children, are unable to fulfill their potential as a large percentage of the population still do not understand what dyslexia is, the difficulties which the condition presents and do not know how best to support them. Dyslexia is not an obvious difficulty; it is hidden. As a result, dyslexic people have to overcome numerous barriers to make a full contribution to society.
