  About Us

History

With more than 20 years of combined experience working on individual learning difficulties, four learning difficulty advocacy organizations came together to form the Learning Difficulties Network of Cyprus in 2006. The Network is based on the principle that all children with learning difficulties deserve the right to an education that meets their needs and helps them develop to their full potential. Believing that there is strength and influence in numbers, these organizations hope to be able to more effectively shape and encourage the implementation special education policy for learning difficulties.

Objective

Our objective is to bring together and strengthen the relationships between learning disability advocacy groups so that they can effectively cooperate with the authorities, professionals, parents to help them learn more about these difficulties, and how they can help children meet the associated challenges and achieve their full capabilities at school.

We will actively work to provide information to those with an interest in learning difficulties in Cyprus.

The Founding Partners

The Cyprus Dyslexia Association (CDA), which was established in 1993 and registered as a charity in 1994, focuses on the welfare of people with the learning disability dyslexia. The CDA was instrumental in the passage of the “Education and Training of Children with Special Needs Law of 1999” and its regulations.
