The Dyslexia Association of Ireland (DAI) works with and for people affected by dyslexia, by providing information, offering appropriate support services, engaging in advocacy and raising awareness of dyslexia. Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty which affects the acquisition of fluent and accurate reading and spelling skills; approx. 10% of the population is affected.
DAI has a national office in Dublin, an adult centre in Leixlip, and a nationwide network of workshops offering local community-based supports.

Services offered by DAI nationwide include:
  • Information and advice
  • Educational Psychology Assessment
  • Specialist literacy tuition for children and adults, including community based weekly workshops for children nationwide and a unique full-time course for unemployed adults with dyslexia
  • Courses for parents
  • Training for teachers and other education personnel
  • Dyslexia awareness training for organisations and companies
  • Seminars for young people and adults on dyslexia
  • Lobbying and advocacy

The Dyslexia Association of Ireland was founded in 1972.

DAI's fundraising is used towards our support services for children and adults with dyslexia in Ireland. In particular it funds subsidised assessments for financially disadvantaged individuals, enabling them to have their needs identified and guidance given on appropriate support strategies. It also funds our free information and advice service run from our national office.
