The Dyslexia-SpLD-Trust is a collaboration of voluntary and community organisations with funding from the Department for Education to provide reliable information to parents, teachers, schools and the wider sector. It acts as the important communication channel between government, leading dyslexia organisations, parents, schools, colleges, teachers and the sector.
The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust (Trust) is made up of the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), Dyslexia Action, the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, the professional association of teachers of students with specific learning difficulties (Patoss), Springboard for children, Xtraordinary People and the Driver Youth Trust. The Trust is established to disseminate reliable, impartial information, guidance and resources to schools, local authorities, practitioners and parents. Through its government contract it provides a conduit between the dyslexia sector, its stakeholders and government.
