Galway Dyslexia association is a non-profit making charity
which helps children with dyslexia. Children with dyslexia find it difficult to
learn to become literate but are usually fully capable of becoming fully
employable members of society with the correct help. If not given help these
children may end up disillusioned very intelligent people but without
qualifications, which in turn leads to problems for them and society. Schools
now help some of these children but cannot help all at present.
Tuition is in the Galway Educate Together School.
Teaching is carried out by fully qualified specialist teachers who have done a
course on dyslexia. All children in the workshops have been assessed by a
psychologist as being dyslexic. Tuition is in groups of four for two hours with
a short break; the tuition is prepared separately for each child and includes
work on computers.
€500 per term. Two terms per year.
