The Philippine Dyslexia Foundation is a non-stock, non-profit organization established in November 1997 by parents and teachers of children with dyslexia and other related learning difficulties.

The foundation aims to ensure that every Filipino individual with dyslexia is able to achieve his/her full potential as a person and citizen.

Objectives:

  1. To be the Philippines' best source of information on dyslexia and related learning difficulties for the general public.
  2. Be proactive in promoting public and educational policies that will support the cause of school-age dyslexics: early diagnosis, remediation and accommodations.
  3. Collaborate with institutions of learning and individual professionals to accelerate Philippine-based research on dyslexia and other related learning difficulties.
  4. Actively support the training and development of teachers and other specialists willing to help people with learning differences. In pursuit of its vision, the Philippine dyslexia foundation raises awareness about dyslexia through advocacy and information dissemination by providing specialised information to parents and teachers.

Any person or institution interested in the work of the Philippine Dyslexia Foundation may join its membership. At present, the members include children and youth with dyslexia, their parents and extended families, teachers, school administrators, medical doctors, psychologists, therapists, school counselors and concerned individuals.
