Language Policy Statement

Dyslecsia Cymru/Wales Dyslexia is committed to providing support for
dyslexics in Wales in both English and Welsh.

As a voluntary organisation, Dyslecsia Cymru/Wales Dyslexia has not
had to submit a formal Welsh Language Scheme for legal approval.
However, we are committed to providing support for all individuals in
Wales in both English and Welsh and have developed a Language Policy
Statement to reflect this commitment.
Written correspondence

Dyslecsia Cymru/Wales Dyslexia welcomes correspondence (including
e-mails) in either English or Welsh. Whenever possible, Dyslecsia
Cymru/Wales Dyslexia will reply in the same language.
Telephone communication

Normally, the telephone will be answered in a way that is accessible
to both Welsh and English speakers. For example, “Bore da – Good
Morning – Dyslecsia Cymru”. When a Welsh speaker is not available to
conduct the conversation, the caller will be invited to:

    submit their enquiry in written form in Welsh so that they can
receive a written response in Welsh;
    explain their enquiry fully in English so that they may receive a
written reply in Welsh;
    continue the call in English.

Information and publicity materials

Dyslecsia Cymru/Wales Dyslexia is committed to producing information
and publicity materials bilingually.

Dyslecsia Cymru/Wales Dyslexia actively seeks to recruit Welsh
speakers as appropriate.
