Dyslexia Victoria Support (Australia)

DVS is a resource hub that supports evidence-based education for dyslexia. We promote evidence-based programs that have been independently, scientifically peer reviewed and published. We now have an open group on Facebook where we share news, information and resources.

Our main Support Group (Dyslexia Victoria Support Forum) is a closed Facebook group and the place to seek advice and support. You can get involved, come to information meetings or just be a member. We don’t require a formal diagnosis for you to be a member or attend support group meetings.

Professional Guidelines

We support the recommendations made by AUSPELD: “Understanding Learning Difficulties, a guide for parents”, the Five from Five Initiative, the Australian Dyslexia Association (ADA), International Dyslexia Association (IDA) , Learning Difficulties Australia (LDA) , and Royal Australian And New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO).

Children and adults can learn to read, spell and write with appropriate educational support. Early evidence-based intervention is recommended.

Our Team

DVS is run by a team of volunteer parents supported by: Teachers, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Academics, Parents, Grandparents, Tutors, Schools and people who have dyslexia.
