Our quarterly magazine is always packed full of great articles and advice. Following a recent redesign, the magazine now has separate sections for:

- Children and young people with dyslexia 

- Adults

- Parents

- Teachers and students

Click here to see our September 2017 magazine which was about the assessment and identification of dyslexia.  

  • Membership benefits - individual membership package

As a member of Dyslexia Scotland you not only help to maintain your local branch, but you also directly contribute to the support we offer to thousands of people across Scotland.  Membership also gives you exclusive access to the specialist resources in the Members’ section of this site. These include teaching aids, more information about our activities and presentations from events.

Other privileges include:

  • Free subscription to our quarterly magazine
  • Discounts on assessments, seminars, training and our annual events
  • Free access to books, DVDs and more in our resource centre - choose from an online catalogue and we will send you the resources to borrow
  • An open invitation to our Adult Network meetings
  • Free mock interviews with Bank of New York Mellon (through their employee volunteering scheme)
  • Free Supporting Dyslexic Secondary Pupils booklets, packed with useful information for parents and teachers
  • The chance to give feedback to the Members’ Representative Council, and have your say at the charity’s AGM.

Annual membership is just £20 for adults, or £10 if you qualify for our concessionary membership (if you’re a student, are unemployed, or are over 60). If there is a branch of Dyslexia Scotland in your area, a percentage of the membership fee goes towards running costs of the branch (£6 per year for full membership and £3 per year for concessionarly membership). If you would prefer this to go to a different branch, please email or phone 01786 446650.

We offer membership for groups and companies too. Annual membership is £60 for private companies, with a discounted rate of £50 for educational organisations.

You will receive all the benefits of individual membership, plus free mailings for three of your staff.
