Started: 2006

Based: London

Lexxic's goal is to unlock the potential of people with dyslexia and other neurological differences, raising the awareness of dyslexia within the workplace, and creating dyslexia-friendly environments.

Founded by Nicola James, a chartered occupational psychologist, Lexxic is now a UK-wide consultancy working with FTSE 100 organisations and government departments to deliver support strategies for employees or customers with dyslexia.

Services include workshops, dyslexia assessments, learning style assessments, coaching and consultancy.

The team is comprised of a group of experienced psychology professionals who have worked with blue-chip companies, voluntary organisations and the public.

In January 2012  and using the profits from Lexxic Ltd, Nicola launched an e-learning website, www.skillsrocket.com, which offers free resources including tutorials, video support and tips for adults with neurological differences.
