The Dyslexia Foundation
TDF is a non-profit organization, established in 1989 to identify and assist children with dyslexia – to establish higher levels of learning through specialized programs promoting better reading.
OUR MISSION is to promote scientific breakthroughs in the early detection, prevention and remediation of dyslexia and related reading difficulties. To disseminate new findings and deploy new evidence-based approaches. To prevent the suffering caused by reading failure and unlock the full potential of children and adults with dyslexia so that they may personally succeed and contribute to society.

Learning disabilities/differences affect upwards of 10% of school age children. The consequences of not remediating these disabilities can be quite severe, ranging from underemployment, psychological difficulties, to even imprisonment. Recent advances in computational science and knowledge management, will allow TDF’s Academic Center for Excellence to bridge the gap between research and intervention for people with learning disabilities/differences.
