About Us

The Dyslexia Association of London has been in operation since 1972.

We believe that dyslexia should not stand as a barrier to success for any person. Many celebrities, entrepreneurs and high-performing individuals have overcome their learning difficulties to achieve their goals. We encourage our members to aim high, and offer them resources to unlock their potential through careful promotion of events, support groups and creative opportunities.

Membership is open to individuals, parents, teachers and to all interested in dyslexia. Members will have access to Adult Dyslexia Support Group meetings and will receive notice of meetings and events.

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.

The London Adult Dyslexia Support Group is a free support group that meets every 2nd Monday of the month, 6:30 - 8:45 PM at St. James Church, 197 Piccadilly, London W1J 9LL.
