The Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association (NDA) is a County-Wide charity that represents and supports individuals who are dyslexic. In order to further our aims, we may provide products or services to individuals, groups and other interested parties.

The NDA is part of a group of National Local Dyslexia Associations who opted for membership with the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), enabling our members automatic rights to the benefit of full membership with the BDA.

How will we use the information about you?


When you sign up to membership of the NDA, your details are passed on to the membership department of the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), in order that you can receive your copies of the Dyslexia Contact Magazine, and so that the NDA can also pay the correct membership and insurance fee to enable this to happen. All the information that we collect and passed to the BDA, is held securely on their Customer Relationship Management System (CRM).
Assessments: From time to time, via our helpline or NDA email, we receive requests for testing or diagnostic assessments. Your information is never passed to assessors, so we will only provide you with a directory of specialists for you to contact and make your own arrangements for this service.

We will not pass on your information to other companies for marketing purposes and will only share it internally in order to enable us to carry out the services you have requested,

We would like to send you information about products and services of ours that you may be interested in, such as newsletter, conferences or webinars. You will be asked for your consent to enable us to do this.
