The Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation has provided vital support to Western Australian children and adults with learning difficulties for the past 50 years. It remains committed to improving the level of support provided to children and adults with learning difficulties; and, the community’s understanding of specific learning disorders, in particular dyslexia. The Foundation continues to focus on ensuring that children and adults with learning difficulties are supported adequately and appropriately, and that all students are provided with the opportunity to achieve their potential. In addition, it provides advice and support to families and educators on successful literacy acquisition; evidence-based practice; and, the strategies known 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.
