The British Dyslexia Association is a reputed and respected international body that helps dyslexic patients realizes their potential. It has been observed that in Britain, 10 percent of the population suffer from dyslexia and 4 out of these 10 cases are what can be considered as ‘severe’ cases. The Disability Discrimination Act 2005 calls Dyslexia as a ‘disability’. Many of the dyslexics in the UK, whether adults or children are not able to live life to their fullest capacity due to other people who do not really know the disease, they do not know what adversities dyslexics face and how to motivate them in the correct manner. We have known of many famous people with dyslexia who have been able to win the world with their talent, so this clearly means that a dyslexic child or adult can realize his or her dream.
The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) strives for a dyslexia friendly society where there are no hindrances or blocks for dyslexic people. The organization works to revolutionize , set standards, support and enable people to channelize their inherent ability in the best manner.
