What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that is neurological in origin, meaning that it is brain-based. It is characterised by difficulties with accurate and fluent word reading and by poor spelling and decoding abilities that do not progress as expected with the provision of well-intentioned and targeted intervention.

How do I go about getting my child assessed?

Psycho-educational, language or functional literacy and/or numeracy assessments (these are conducted by a registered psychologist or speech pathologist who has specialist knowledge in the learning difficulties field) are available by appointment at DSF Clinics. An assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of the child or adult's learning strengths and difficulties as well as a number of recommended strategies for both remediation and support.

How do I purchase books from the DSF online store with a purchase order?

Registered schools and educational organisations can pay for online orders (including bookshop, memberships and workshop registrations) using a school Purchase Order number. In order to do so, you must be logged in to the DSF website and your account will need to be connected to a school or registered educational organisation. 

Admin users from registered schools/educational organisation accounts are able to provide you with a login that is connected to your school. If you already have a login but this is not connected to your school then you will need to ask DSF to connect your exisiting account to your school's account and DSF will seek approval from your school's exisiting admin contact.

The first Purchase Order placed on behalf of a school can take up to 3 business days to be approved however subsequent orders will be approved automatically.
