Square Pegs is a not for profit association, started in 2013 by two concerned parents passionate about improving outcomes for children with dyslexia.
We have quickly developed into a dedicated team of volunteers, from around the State.
Our volunteer Board is made up of parents, teachers, academics, medical and allied health professionals, including adults with dyslexia. We also have local network coordinators in a number of locations around the State. Learn more about our team...

Through your raising awareness of dyslexia you've made a huge difference to my son's life. After 8 years of teachers telling me "he'll be right" and "no need to worry" your ad in the school newsletter grabbed my attention. My son has now been diagnosed with dyslexia and has commenced intense intervention programs including qualifying for support sessions at school and privately. He'll be so much better prepared for High School next year. But most importantly his self esteem has sky rocketed. He's not dumb after all.”
