Dyslexia support in libraries
Dyslexia is a learning difference that can affect the ability to read, write and spell.
East Sussex libraries are committed to providing whatever support they can for:
- parents and carers looking to aid the development of children with dyslexia
- dyslexic parents and carers looking to find books to share with small children
- adults with dyslexia looking to find ways to enjoy reading or develop their skills.
How we can help
