Join Our London Adult Dyslexia Support Group
The Adult Dyslexia support group meets on a monthly basis at St James Piccadilly. The group was set up almost 25 years ago by Eileen Harwood who still runs it to this day. It was set up as a safe place for adults with dyslexia to come and share their experiences and struggles with dyslexia and also to help uplift each other.
Some weeks the group runs as a support group and other weeks we have speakers who come and talk about different topics such as how technology can help with dyslexia, how to practice mindfulness as well as addressing managing yourself and your boss in the workplace.
We welcome questions and newcomers to the group. If there is a topic you are interested in we also encourage suggestions. Everything that is said in the group is confidential.
If you are struggling at work or have been recently diagnosed with dyslexia and feel lost, we welcome you to come along.
We have curated the upcoming dyslexia-related events in London and nearby areas. Please feel free to check out this event page every now and then for the latest happenings and gatherings.

Review by Omar Gunnoo
At first glance, the title offers no obvious cryptic meanings. However, when reading on it becomes evident that just like the title, the book’s strength is in in its simplicity. In saying that, the title gives little justice to how incredibly ‘useful’ this ‘hand book’ truly is.
Steve Rowhan is a long running member of the Adult Dyslexia support group and in acknowledgement of the work that we do, he has offered to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon on our behalf.
The race takes place on 13th October, and the course consists of some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks.
