My 2 grandsons both have suffered due to this malady. One of them was prevented from joining the Armed Forces because of this even though he had the fitness and drive to achieve his dream.

My child is now at GCSE level . They have found taking tests upsetting and stressful as they cannot read or understand the questions. We need to recognise now in 2021 that we all do not have the same level of abilities when taking tests or understand the language it is written in and to make sure that our children are given a fair chance to get a good grade tests need to be written in simple language with a good grade to achieve and employers need to recognise that dyslexic people or anyone with a disability have something to give even if they do not get a A to C .

Having a daughter with dyslexia and having worked with students with dyslexia in the past, our exam system is geared up to neuro-typical individuals which is therefore discriminatory to those that are not and is in need of a reform.

Being dyslexic as well as the benefits it also has its challenges. Exams are stressful not being to read the paper because the sentences and word are shoved together so tightly that it becomes a jumbled mixup mess means a dyslexic has failed before they have even started. All dyslexics deserve better.

My children struggled with exam papers over 20 years ago. I am astounded that still nothing has been done to improve the situation.
