Mission Statement

To represent the dyslexic community that supports a non-phonics based solution

The Dyslexia Association is the first Australian Association to recognise a non-phonics (or non linguistic) solution.
 

Goals

The Dyslexia Association allows a new understanding of dyslexia. It recognises that dyslexic people need to be offered alternatives to the conventional methods of instruction.

The Dyslexia Association seeks equality and equity into non-phonics based research and pilot projects to match the investment made into auditory/phonics based techniques.

The Dyslexia Association supports positive learning experiences for dyslexic children which equals the experiences of the auditory learner.

Our commitment is to create an effective and long term improvement by increasing awareness of dyslexia and empowering the dyslexic learner through their own innovative visual and creative learning style.

The Dyslexia Association is devoted to promoting and pursuing a positive definition of dyslexia.

The Dyslexia Association supports the need for screening for dyslexia to be made available through the school to all children experiencing learning difficulties. The Dyslexia Association acknowledges that there is no exact science for assessing therefore the results may not be accurate and may need to be re-evaluated at different points in the child’s development.

The Dyslexia Association Inc. is a non-profit registered association.
