Founder's Message

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As the founder of the Africa Dyslexia Organisation, my journey has been both personal and profound. Learning to read at the age of 17 marked the beginning of a challenging yet enlightening path. It was not until I turned 30 that I was formally diagnosed with dyslexia. This revelation was not an end but a new beginning, giving me the clarity and purpose to advocate for others facing similar challenges.

Four years post-diagnosis, the Africa Dyslexia Organisation was born out of a deep-seated desire to effect change and provide the support I longed for in my earlier years. Our mission is to transform the narrative of dyslexia from one of difficulty to one of hope and empowerment.

We strive to be a beacon for those who, like me, have had to navigate the educational landscape with dyslexia. It is my personal journey that fuels my passion for this cause, and it is this same passion that drives our organisation to push for a world where every dyslexic individual can thrive.

I invite you, as individuals and organisations, to join us in this important work. Your support can take many forms, from financial contributions to volunteer efforts, or simply spreading the word about dyslexia and its impact. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of dyslexic learners across Africa and beyond.

Thank you for your continued support and belief in our mission.

Warm regards,

Rosalin A. Kyere-Nartey

WHO ARE YOU TO THE CHILD ?

The Adult Reading History Questionnaire (ARHQ) is a screening tool designed to measure risk of reading disability (i.e. dyslexia) in adults (Lefly & Pennington, 2000), but it can also help measure risk in children, especially before school age. Reading disability is highly heritable: about 30-60% percent of children born to a dyslexic parent will develop dyslexia. Thus, one way to estimate risk of reading disability in preschool children is to evaluate parents’ own reading history. The following questionnaire was developed using parents’ reports of their own reading history as well as actual testing of their children’s reading skills. If a parent scores high on the ARHQ, their child has a higher risk of developing a reading disability. It is important to note that the ARHQ is only a screener and does not constitute a formal evaluation or diagnosis of either the parent or the child. If you have concerns about your child’s reading progress, we recommend that you contact your child’s school, a licensed child psychologist, or your child’s primary care physician about pursuing a more thorough evaluation to investigate the nature of these concerns.

The Colorado Learning Disabilities Questionnaire – Reading Subscale (CLDQ-R) is a screening tool designed to measure risk of reading disability (i.e. dyslexia) in school-age children (Willcutt, Boada, Riddle, Chhabildas, DeFries & Pennington, 2011). Normative scores for this questionnaire were developed based on parent-reports of their 6-18 year-old children, as well as actual reading testing of these children. Willcutt, et al. (2011) found that the CLDQ-R is reliable and valid. It is important to note that the CLDQ-R is only a screener and does not constitute a formal evaluation or diagnosis. If you have concerns about your child’s reading progress, we recommend that you contact your child’s school, a licensed child psychologist, or your child’s primary care physician about pursuing a more thorough evaluation to investigate the nature of these concerns.

WHAT'S YOUR GENDER?

The Adult Reading History Questionnaire (ARHQ) is a self-report screening tool designed to measure risk of reading disability (i.e. dyslexia) in adults (Lefly & Pennington, 2000). The ARHQ asks adults about their own reading history and current reading habits in order to estimate the risk that they may have a reading disability. Normative scores are based on actual testing, and Lefly & Pennington (2000) found that the ARHQ is reliable and valid. It is important to note that the ARHQ is only a screener and does not constitute a formal evaluation or diagnosis. If you have concerns about your reading skills, we recommend that you contact a licensed psychologist or your primary care physician about pursuing a more thorough evaluation to investigate the nature of these concerns.
