Who We Are

Dyslexia Association Birmingham was formed in September 1999 when North and South Birmingham Associations amalgamated. Since then hundreds of people have been helped by DAB.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to improve the understanding of dyslexia, to ensure every young person with dyslexia has a way forward to endeavour to help them achieve their full potential.

The DAB Office Team

I am Denny Manning, the Charity Director. I have worked here for 7 years and am passionate about the work we do. I have a dyslexic husband Ian, and 2 children Laura and Ben who are dyslexic. Over the years I have realised I also have dyslexic tendencies and dyscalculia!

So much has been achieved since the Association opened. The Helpline, Presentations, Birmingham Libraries Partnership, Assessments, The ‘Drop in Centre’ The website, a fantastic team of volunteers and many more ‘behind the scenes’ triumphs….networking with so many other organisations, attending information days, holding training days, building up partnerships within systems. Yes there have been lows…the time we had six weeks funding and we would have to close down, the continual funding applications. But the good far out weighs the bad and we never say never!

Chris Taylor, Information Officer. Chris has worked for the Association for 4 years and quite simply is a fantastic individual. She has 2 children Andrew who is on the autistic spectrum and Anna who like her Mum and Dad, is dyslexic.

Chris has the patience of a saint…and needs it when I get the look in my eye of ‘I have an idea’ – and Chris has the look of ‘ Here we go’……..But she’s with me all the way and we make a great team.
