The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust
The Dyslexia-SpLD-Trust, or the Trust, is a collaboration of voluntary and community organisations with funding from the Department for Education to provide reliable information to parents, teachers, schools and the wider sector. It acts as the important communication channel between government, leading dyslexia organisations, parents, schools, colleges, teachers and the sector.
The Trust aims to ensure that in order for children with Dyslexia/SpLD to succeed in school there is:
- A focus on high quality teaching practices by all teachers
- Access to specialist teachers and resources
- Early intervention and early action for those at greatest risk of failing
- Acceptance of the importance of Dyslexia/SpLD as a major contributor to educational under achievement and a strong risk factor for limited life opportunities
