The Dyslexia Guild is a network of professionals who are keen to maintain contact and further their specialist teaching, assessment and support for those with dyslexia and other literacy difficulties. The Guild aims to promote discussion, information and research as well as keeping members informed of developments in the field through publication and distribution.
The Dyslexia Guild is open to all those with a professional or general interest in dyslexia. Professional members hold designatory letters and include primary and secondary teachers, SENCo’s and teaching assistants as well as Further and Higher Education support tutors and advisory specialists. Our network is also highly relevant to dyslexia and specific learning disability assessors, librarians and other specialists through Affiliate membership.
Established in the Spring of 1994 from the alumni of The Dyslexia Institute Teaching courses, going from strength to strength in members numbers. Membership levels with designatory letters for eligible members are introduced in November 2015.
“In April 1969 Mrs Wendy Fisher edited and published the first Dyslexia Review. This was the first regular publication in Britain on dyslexia and emerged from the North Surrey Dyslexic Society to “stimulate further study and lead both parents and teachers to reflect on their respective responsibilities at home and in the classroom.”
The Review is a topical journal that features academic articles, cutting edge research, updates, book and assessment reviews.
The first Guild Symposium took place on Saturday 3rd December 1994 at the Institute of Child Health, University of London.
Our vibrant annual conference provides discussion, information and best practice in the field of dyslexia/SpLD and welcomes members and non-members.
