Welcome to DSSE, the branch of Dyslexia Scotland that covers Edinburgh, Mid and East Lothian.


Sorry we have been a bit quiet !

   On behalf of Dyslexia Scotland South East branch I'd like to say that we’re sorry we’ve been a little quiet lately, but we hope to have some more events soon.  Watch this space!


Please see information below about an important piece of work that’s being done to look at additional support for learning.


The Scottish Government is carrying out a review into the implementation of additional support for learning in schools from now until December.  The Chair is keen to hear directly from children, and young people, parents, practitioners and others with an interest in additional support for learning about how it works in practice.


Further information about the review and how to feed in your views is here: https://www.gov.scot/groups/additional-support-for-learning-review/.


Please remember you can contact Dyslexia Scotland’s Helpline with any queries about dyslexia. www.dyslexiascotland.org.uk/helpline


Best wishes

It’s now much easier to join or renew your membership of Dyslexia Scotland online!


Dyslexia Scotland now has the facility to pay for your membership or renewal online. We hope that by reducing the need to fill in forms and post them to us it will be easier for more people to show their support.    


The following link explains all the benefits of membership and the simple steps you need to take to join online.  Please note that it is also still possible to join using a printed membership form. 





DSSE is run by a committee of volunteers. At present we are in need of some help and so if you can help in any little way then please get in touch. We have a membership of over 130 and try to provide support to encourage and enable dyslexic people, regardless of their age or abilities, to reach their potential in education, employment and life
