DFNZ is focused on action-oriented activities to champion change for dyslexic individuals, and on providing information, tools and resources to inspire others to do the same.

DFNZ has a twin focus on education and youth justice, based on getting it right for dyslexic individuals in the classroom and the courts. In the classroom, this is about improving the dyslexic student’s experience and achievements by ensuring that legal rights to inclusive learning and accommodations are delivered on. In the courts, this is about ensuring dyslexic youth are not entrapped in a system that treats them unfairly as adults. For a young person with learning differences that render them ill-equipped to understand and deal with the justice system, DFNZ contends the default should be a family inclusive, restorative approach.

    I hope that this small donation impacts children with dyslexia. Just as I've had it since little, I have gone on to overcome and embrace it with the support of extra curricular support. I wish children that is reached out from the Dyslexia foundation gain the patience and fortitude to overcome daily learning challenges. In turn gaining a new superpower that helps them achieve their best in life.
