Literacy Service

The Education Authority’s Literacy Service provides support for pupils, schools and parents in the area of specific learning difficulties in literacy (SpLDs)/dyslexia.

The EA Literacy Service is currently providing a limited service due to circumstances arising from Coronavirus.

If your child has been referred to the Literacy Service and you are seeking information relating to this referral, or if your child was being supported by the Service when school closures commenced and you are seeking advice or guidance, please contact the service via email at the following address:

Our mailbox is staffed during office hours from Monday to Friday. When emailing, please provide the phone number on which we can most easily contact you, your child’s full name and date of birth, the name of their school and the detail of your query. On receipt of your email, a member of the team will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Please note that due to the current closure of EA premises, our team is not currently available to answer calls to normal office numbers.
