We believe in leading the change, disrupting the norm and celebrating the differences.! re:think dyslexia is the brainchild of Shae Wissell. Over the last seven years, she has worked to build national awareness of dyslexia from the adult’s perspective. Through her lived experience of being neurodivergent and her work experiences she believes more must be done to better support adults with dyslexia, especially in the workplace. As such, re:think dyslexia was born a purpose-driven, award-winning, neurodivergent women-lead social enterprise here to create inclusive environments that enable adults with dyslexia to live healthier, happier and more connected lives. Our mission is to help the world to better understand, value and support dyslexics.

re:think dyslexia is proud to partner with the Dear Dyslexic Foundation (DDF). DDF is a dyslexic-led grass-roots charity founded seven years ago by Shae. Its vision was and is to empower people with dyslexia to reach their full potential. DDF undertakes advocacy work and in time will provide funding support through the Meerkat Fund set up in honour of Shae’s mum who, as a School Principal, educator and parent of dyslexic children, was a fierce advocate and leader for improving outcomes for those with dyslexia. Vicky is now DDF’s Dyslexia Champion, and the fund has been set up for families and individuals to access assessments, early interventions, and educational assistance. Something Vicky strongly believed should be available for everyone in our community, especially the most financially vulnerable.
