DAGBAGS (Dyslexia Action Group Barossa and Gawler Surrounds)

DAGBAGS is a not for profit charity, dedicated to raising awareness of Dyslexia and committed to making the Barossa and Gawler surrounds the first Dyslexia Friendly Schools area in South Australia.

With dyslexic tendancies affecting approximately 10% of the population, and 25% of Australian school children having "dyslexic style" learning needs, we feel it is important that the best support, such as identifying early indicators, cost neutral and additional accomodations, teacher training, and raised awareness are commonplace in every school.

We hope to make the Barossa and Gawler surrounds the first area in South Australia to achieve the Dyslexia Friendly Schools status.

Clare is studying a Masters in Autism, and through her studies noted that Dyslexia is extremely common in children on the spectrum. Clare sees that Dyslexia Friendly Schools will change the lives of those with Dyslexia, and further benefit those who have additional learning difficulties.
