    guild logo


    We are pleased to announce the winning design of our Dyslexia Guild Logo poll.  We are thrilled to have a specific identity for the Guild.  Going forward we will provide members with guidelines and permissions on how they may use the Guild logo in their work setting.

    The Dyslexia Guild is now a part of Real Group Ltd who are keen for the membership organisation to continue to grow and flourish under their care.  Whilst we are very sorry to see the end of the charitable arm of Dyslexia Action, the name has been retained and will continue as a training provider for UK and international professionals.  We look forward to new initiatives and new challenges in the year ahead but always with a view to supporting specialist teachers, assessors and support staff in the valuable work they do.
