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


Dyslexia Scotland - working from home


   This is to let you know that as from 4 pm today, Friday 20th March, all Dyslexia Scotland staff will move to working from home until further notice, as a result of advice from NHS Inform and the Scottish Government about the spread of the Corona virus. We have spent this week working with our IT support services ensuring that all staff are prepared for this.

If you need to get in touch with the office, in the first instance, please
email info@dyslexiascotland.org.uk or, if you already have the email address for the person you wish to contact, do use that. If you really do need to call, use the main line number (01786) 446650 and you can leave a message. Your voice message will automatically be forwarded to one of our emails and the appropriate person will respond. Please note there might be a small delay.

The helpline will be running as per usual. If someone does need dyslexia advice they can call the helpline number on 0344 800 8484. Please do not use this number for general calls.

We will regularly update our website with any changes in this connection, at the following link:

It is the time of year when the Spring Edition of our magazine would normally be distributed and it is delayed due to the current situation. Until we can distribute this, I have attached a digital copy and hope you enjoy it. I'll email later to get your feedback. :)

Everyone at Dyslexia Scotland wishes you all good health, stay safe and keep well.
