|Main area of work concerning dyslexia and early childhood intervention
||European Dyslexia Association facilitates the exchange of information and good practice through international networking and lobbying. In partnership with its member organisations, the EDA will challenge prejudice and ignorance to ensure that people with dyslexia are empowered to reach their full potential.
A main aim of EDA is to inform people in Europe about the necessity of supporting those who are dyslexic in a positive way, in order to avoid negative consequences caused by inappropriate education and training, low self-esteem and underachievement leading to social exclusion.
Effective membership is restricted to non-profit making dyslexia associations only. Other organisations with a scientific or social interest in dyslexia can apply for adherent membership.
Every child, adolescent and adult with dyslexia in Europe has the right to access and to receive appropriate support and opportunity to achieve their full potential in education, training, employment and life.
