Dyslexia Lincolnshire was established in 2011 by a Lincolnshire resident who recognised that his failing at school in the 1970s was due, in part, to Dyslexia not being identified as an issue for his slow reading and poor working memory. Adult education and Assistive Technology, such as Text-to-Speech, liberated his potential to access the written word. This meant he was now more able to help his children with their homework. Assistive Technology also helped him to foster a love for education that transcended his expectations. He now wants to help people who struggle to access support in areas of the county that are isolated and where people are on low incomes.
He hopes MyStudyApps, free support for Dyslexia, will help adults, children and young people to realise their true potential.
