A team of experts have moved to Ipswich from Felixstowe for a larger warehouse area to stock thousands of specialist products to support people with dyslexia and other special educational needs (SEN).
Ipswich Borough Council agreed the tenancy, at the former Securicor building in Raeburn Road South in Autumn 2022. The building now holds thousands of different products from tinted workbooks to read aloud pens plus many others that ease visual stress for individuals living with dyslexia and other specific needs.
The Dyslexia Shop started as a small business at home, before expanding to premises in Felixstowe and now Ipswich as demand for its products has increased. The company offers advice and more than 4,000 specialist SEN products throughout the UK, working with schools, prisons, hospitals and other public services as well as private individuals of all ages from infant to retired.
Owner of The Dyslexia Shop Honor Page says:
“We are pleased to be here in Ipswich with space to grow and new opportunities to link with schools close by around the town. We’re a team of six experts offering advice on products to help people of any age with special educational needs - not just dyslexia - with their learning or to improve day-to-day tasks at work.”
Councillor David Ellesmere, Ipswich Borough Council Leader and Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Property, says:
“It’s great to see The Dyslexia Shop operating from their new base here in Ipswich. This is a company with a national reach, distributing thousands of specialist products right across the UK.
“With room to expand and with the proximity to new contacts in the education sector that the move to Ipswich allows, I’m looking forward to seeing them flourish in the future.”
