Support and advice for individuals, families and educators

DSF provides advice and support to families and educators on successful literacy acquisition, evidence-based practice, and the strategies most likely to improve literacy outcomes for all students. Our role includes supporting and advising students, adults and families directly, as well as indirectly through the support and advice provided at a school or employment level.

How DSF can help

The Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation (DSF) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides a range of services for individuals with persistent learning difficulties and disorders. Our services are designed to benefit all children struggling with literacy and/or numeracy acquisition, regardless of whether or not they have been identified with a learning disorder (such as dyslexia). We are recognised as a “centre of excellence” in the field of literacy development and in the understanding and response to literacy failure.
