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.

As a person who wasn’t diagnosed until my late 20s, I finally had an understanding of what was wrong with me, which helped me to get the support I needed at university. My diagnosis has also helped me to explain to employers that I have difficulties in some areas, but reassure them that I have the skills and support that I need to complete the work that they need.

It’s important not to let your diagnosis become a psychological barrier: where you are the disability, rather than the disability being just a part of you. After my diagnosis, I grieved for what I felt I had missed if only I had been diagnosed earlier. I went through anger, depression and frustration before I got to:

Acceptance – I still struggle with this, but I have accepted that I see the world a little differently to other people and that’s what makes the world go round. (And I still have bad days where I ring my mum and cry about it!)

Please note: This service is only to provide a Dyslexia Screen and report only and does not constitute a full learning disability/dyslexia assessment. We do not provide full assessments, however, where needed from this data we can make recommendations for a full assessment and can refer you to our partnering psychology services in Melbourne and recommendations in other states and territories.
