Somerset Dyslexia Association (SDA) is run by a group of local, friendly volunteers. We support children and their families, students and adults who are experiencing difficulty with reading and writing. We work to raise public awareness and understanding of dyslexia.


Initially set up by a group of concerned parents 34 years ago, the SDA has grown to be one of the most active local dyslexia associations in England.


If you have any concerns or simply would like to chat about the options available then please feel free to call us. For more information click Helplines Page >>
