We now have four Adult Network Groups. Please see our events page for more information about our upcoming meetings, which are all currently online via Zoom. This means that you are not limited by geography - you can attend any of our upcoming meetings.
Monthly Monday meetings - 2022 meeting dates and topics schedule
- Quarterly Saturday meetings - 2022 meeting dates and topics schedule

- NEW Quarterly Student Network meetings - beginning in February 2022 - 2022 meeting dates schedule
Our networks are facilitated by three supportive and dedicated volunteers. Liz has been leading the networks on Mondays and Saturdays for over 15 years, so has a wealth of experiences supporting dyslexic adults! Jean has been leading the Wednesday network for three years and has several years of dyslexia support experience from her working life.
Dean has recently become the Student Network facilitator volunteer, but has previously been volunteering in a variety of roles in Dyslexia Scotland for four years. He is currently working on his PhD and is very keen to support other dyslexic students through the new Student Network.
The Networks are support groups for people over 18 who have dyslexia. The meetings can help you to:
- meet other dyslexic folk and share your strategies and experiences
- discuss how you have overcome challenges
- talk about issues in education and employment
- learn from guest speakers
We are aware that some people might feel a little nervous about attending an adult network meeting, so the first time you attend, you would be welcome to bring a friend or relative. Around 15-20 people attend most meetings, so you won't be lost in a huge crowd of people. Regular attenders are very supportive and enjoy sharing their experiences/strategies with new people. You're most welcome to come along and find out more.
If you have any questions about our adult networks, please email [email protected]
If you enjoy your first meeting and would like to attend regularly, we recommend that you become a member of Dyslexia Scotland. An individual membership is £20 per year or £10 for concessions. You can see more about the other benefits of membership here. However, you can still attend our meetings without being a member.
