What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is the common learning difficulty that causes problems with reading, writing and spelling. It is a specific difficulty which causes problem with certain abilities used for learning. It does not affect the individual’s intelligence.

It is estimated that 1 in every 5 children in a class could have signs of dyslexia.

What if all teachers are trained to identify dyslexia in children and to support them in class?

”A teacher educated about Dyslexia can be the one person who saves a child and his/her family from years of frustration and anxiety. That teacher can play a pivotal role in changing the whole culture of the school.” – Dr. Kelli Sandman Hurley

Dyslexia Organization, Kenya

Dyslexia Organization, Kenya (DOK), is a non-profit NGO established and registered under the NGO Board of Kenya in 2011. Our programme mission is to create public awareness and intervention strategies for dyslexia, a learning condition that affects many school-going children in our country. Quite often the children are referred to as 'slow learners’ or weak performers. We believe that these are biased references of discouragement in a very competitive environment. These children are the opposite; as has been proved, they are indeed gifted and talented.
