What is DAN?

The Dyslexia Adult Network (DAN) has been founded to increase awareness of the impact of dyslexia and related conditions on adults.

We are made up of representatives of the major dyslexia charities and of specialists, including adults with dyslexia.

We want to:
  • eradicate myths about neurodivergence in adults
  • draw attention to the waste of potential (arising from inadequate education, lack of awareness and of good support)
  • campaign for improvements to public services, such as Access to Work, for the 10 million neurodivergent individuals in the U.K.

We are identifying key areas for our campaigns. We are passionate about campaigning to change mindsets and gain recognition for this hidden issue which affects 10 million people in the UK.

This is only the beginning. Watch this space...
