Helen Arkell is a registered charity, founded by Helen, Joy Pollock and Elisabeth Waller. It first opened its doors in London on 26 April 1971. We have been based at our current location in Frensham, Surrey, since 1987.
In the broadest possible sense Helen Arkell encompasses a whole spectrum of learning. Individual dyslexics come to learn about themselves, their challenges and how to compensate for them. Teachers and educationalists, as well as employers, come to us to learn about dyslexics and how to deliver the dyslexia strategies that will help them achieve their potential.
At the same time, in the middle of it all, we ourselves learn more and more about how to identify people with dyslexia and develop new ideas to enable and facilitate the whole process. Overall it means we meet a lot of people at Helen Arkell:
We are happy to share our ideas and enthusiasm with everybody. Anybody, child or adult alike, is welcome at Helen Arkell.
