Have your association join the community

Application for membership of the European Dyslexia Association is open to all associations of parents of children with dyslexia and/or adults with dyslexia (specific learning disabilities in the domain of reading, spelling, writing and/or mathematics).

Application for membership is also open to other entities and corporate bodies which have educational or scientific motivation and are recognised in the domain of dyslexia / specific learning disabilities. All applicants must prove that they are legally constituted according to their own national laws and customs.

Types of membership

There are two types of memberships in the European Dyslexia Association:

Effective member

Effective members include the nine founder member associations plus other associated organisations. Effective members are entitled to speak and vote at General Assemblies.

Adherent member

Adherent members include corporate bodies and other entities. Adherent members are not entitled to vote at General Assemblies but may be present in an advisory capacity.

What is required?

  • The corporate bodies have to be legally constituted according to their own national laws and customs. 
  • The members have to agree on and to accept only scientifically based methods of intervention and education for people with dyslexia. 
  • The Effective and Adherent members have to pay a subscription. Members can be excluded, if they fail to pay their subscription.

Membership of the European Dyslexia Association does not convey any status on a member which could be construed as approval by the EDA of any and all activities, publications or statements undertaken by that member association. Any action by a member association which misrepresents the European Dyslexia Association by implying such approval will be considered a serious offence by the Board of Directors and will result in the termination of that association’s membership.

European Dyslexia Association membership is not for individuals. Instead we advice individuals to join a local organisation/association that is a member with the EDA (see the members list for more information).
