A group of parents of children with dyslexia, educationists empathetic to the cause, and philanthropists came together to establish the Madras Dyslexia Association (MDA) in 1992.
It is a non-profit service organization founded to take a pragmatic approach to helping children with dyslexia. MDA has been functioning for the past two decades in providing remedial help and support to these children, their parents, as well as spreading awareness to the community at large, helping schools set up resource rooms and conducting teacher training program.
Since dyslexia hidden disability which does not allow the child to perform to his/her actual is a potential, the under achievement of an otherwise intelligent child is puzzling to both teachers and parents alike. Timely identification and appropriate help will ensure that these children continue in the mainstream of education and their potential is fully tapped.
MDA has been training many mainstream teachers and conducting teacher workshops and have had a very good response from the fraternity. Inorder to reach teachers across the country and the globe, the course content has been made available digitally as Eshikshanamcourses.
