What do we do? 

The Adult Dyslexia Centre is a charity that has been supporting dyslexic adults in the Thames Valley since 2003 from its base in  
Maidenhead, Berkshire. We provide free and subsidised services so that our dyslexic clients can afford them. 
We also aim to educate the wider community about dyslexia and showcase its positive aspects.
