There should be a Dyslexia expert in every school so Dyslexia can be recognised and help given at the earliest possible time.

Assessments should be available to everyone who needs one, not just those who can afford one. Every child deserves to get the support that they need.

No child should be denied access to the viral support they need to make the most of their education.

Long time ago. I'm 76. They hadn't invented the word Dyslexia and I was laughed at at school from primary all the way. It was a struggle and had I been diagnosed life would not have been so cruel. GIVE KIDS/PEOPLE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BREAK OUT OF THE TRAP OF MISUNDERSTANDING AND ALLOW THEM TO REALISE THERE POTENTIAL!!!

My 12 year old granddaughter still has no help but struggles through school feeling demoralised and depressed because she sounds like her 6 year old sister when she tries to read out loud! When is she going to get proper targeted help?
