Recently DDF has been going through significant change and has now partnered with re:think dyslexia

re:think dyslexia is a global leader that will influence intergenerational change so adults with dyslexia are never left behind. Our mission is to create inclusive environments that enable adults with dyslexia to live healthier, happier and more connected lives.

By partnering with re:think dyslexia  DDF will continue to provide a platform for those with a lived experience of dyslexia to share their stories as a means of empowerment and self-advocacy. DDF will continue to raise awareness of dyslexia through direct action and advocacy work with state and federal governments.

The Dear Dyslexic Podcast Series which celebrates stories of people living with dyslexia will continue with re:think dyslexia. Peer support groups including the PhD support group and our closed Facebook community will also continue under this new banner.
