Supporting Agencies

DAGBAGS (Dyslexia Action Group Barossa and Gawler Surrounds)

NAAB (Northern Adelaide And Barossa) is the original DAGBAGS Group. They are winners of numerous awards and are passionate about creating dyslexia awareness in our local area. They are committed to supporting schools in  the Barossa and Gawler become Dyslexia Friendly Schools.

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

The NAAB Branch meet on Tuesday Nights (week 3 and 7) of the Term at 6.00pm. They meet at different locations throughout the Northern Adelaide, Gawler and Barossa areas.
