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.
