WHAT WE DO

‘Literacy is, finally, the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realise his or her full potential’

– Kofi Annan


The Reading Academy provides a course that is unique and different from any other: 

Schools: The Reading Academy offers an online course designed for teachers that provides specific training in how to teach students with dyslexia and struggling readers how to read. This is an independent, self-paced course  that includes lesson plans, word lists, quizzes, video instruction, whiteboard animations, worksheets and more. There is also a supported private Facebook group page, where members can communicate with each other throughout the programme. School teachers will also have the opportunity for face-to-face training at locations around the country.

Organisations including adult literacy, family and community programmes:  We offer online instruction to organisations and their members on how to teach individuals with dyslexia and struggling readers how to read.  This is an independent, self-paced course that includes lesson plans, word lists, quizzes, video instruction, whiteboard animations, worksheets and more.  There is also a supported private Facebook group page, where members can communicate with each other about the programme.

Parents: We offer an online course to teach parents how to teach their struggling reader or child with dyslexia to read.  This is an independent, self-paced course that includes lesson plans, word lists, quizzes, video instruction, whiteboard animations, worksheets and more.  There is also a supported private Facebook group page, where members can communicate with each other about the programme.

Parents have the option of enrolling their child in our face-to- face classes.  Currently, these classes are for struggling readers and students with dyslexia from 2nd – 6th class.



The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially recognized Dyslexia International in 2006 and granted DI consultative status in 2011. This is both an honor and a responsibility. DI now advocates with its associates for more than 10 percent of the world’s population whose specific reading difficulties, if not addressed, put them at risk of life-long illiteracy.
