Learning Disability (Dyslexia) is the most prevalent of all learning disabilities. Close to 20% of children have a learning disability with 10% of these being in the severe to profound category. Many of these students also have other coexisting conditions which also increases their vulnerability to mental health disorders.
A number of these children come from disadvantaged backgrounds and their families are unable to afford many of the services some of us take for granted. The cost of a professionally administered literacy intervention can be up to $6,000. This may seem a lot but it is much less than the fees of most Brisbane private schools per year.
Reading, writing and spelling are indispensable commodities for modern life. Your donation will help fund literacy intervention for a primary school child with a learning disability. This gift of literacy will change a child's life forever, allowing them to reach their full potential at school and in adulthood.
The Literacy Foundation for Children is committed to equiping and empowering parents, carers and educators of children with learning disability through providing information, resources, access to intervention and support that will improve the lives of those children. Specifically:
We are a young foundation, having just been recently established, and we would appreciate your support to provide assistance to at risk children and families who are waiting to receive help. We are also unique. There is no other foundation in Australia that seeks to provide support for children suffering from learning difficulties related to literacy, such as dyslexia.
