Dyslexia impacts at least 10 per cent of the population. This equates to over 8,000 Tasmanian school children. Many go without recognition or support.

 

Literacy is an equity issue, one that is critical to the success of our students.

Because of both the lack of proper evaluation and intervention in the public schools and the subsequent cost of seeking them privately, many students with dyslexia are denied their right to an equal education.

 

It is not only critical that we help for their sake but also ours, as these children represent our future innovators, scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs.

Our pilot Dyslexia Empowerment programmes for primary and secondary students will take place from July 2022.

To make these programmes a success we need your support! We hope to fully fund these programmes through grants and corporate sponsorships so that students will attend at no cost to their families.

 

Currently, we are looking for individuals and organizations who would like to join us in our mission to level the playing field for ALL students with dyslexia, regardless of
socio-economic status.

Our capacity to deliver this project relies on our hard working

volunteers, fundraising activities and your generous donations. 

 

All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
