Dyslexia Organization, Kenya is a non-governmental organization which was started in 2011. It is the pioneer organization in Africa to champion for the rights of children with dyslexia. Our objectives are to raise awareness about dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, advocate for accommodation of students with learning difficulties in the education system and to work with individuals, organizations and nations to support the education of people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. Our ultimate goal is to have a learning environment where every student is accommodated.
Our focus is on the needs of pupils and individuals with specific learning difficulties in Kenya and Africa. We achieve our goals by raising awareness about the many students who struggle with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, training teachers, and supporting parents of children who are struggling with dyslexia.
