Where Your Money Goes

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.
