At Helen Arkell dyslexia is our speciality

We believe dyslexic people are special, and we specialise in dyslexic people. All dyslexics are individuals, and a large part of our work is dedicated to identifying those children and adults alike who are faced with the challenges of dyslexia.

Dyslexia is much more common than most people think and affects as many as one in every eight people. If identified early most dyslexics quickly learn to cope well, are at no real disadvantage in life, and often find their dyslexia a positive asset in later years.
