About Us

April 2013 2 phone 011Relaunched in 2012, PaCDDA is a charitable organisation that supports children and adults with dyslexia, their families, educators and employers; and aims to raise awareness of dyslexia.

Our Children Will Shine workshops  have been running for 2 years now and we have some wonderful stories of children whose lives are being transformed; they are now enjoying rather than dreading going to school, and are increasingly excited by learning.

We are part of the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) and are funded by membership subscriptions and our own fundraising efforts.

Our vision is of a society where people with dyslexia are supported and able to fulfil their individual potential.

Our mission is to create a sustainable organisation by 2016, providing support to individuals of all ages affected by dyslexia and to raise awareness of dyslexia in all aspects of life in our region.

We are also looking to start other Children Will Shine workshops in the region and to find participants and volunteers. Do get in touch! Use our contact form.
