Niamh Hannah started this petition to Secretary of State for Education of the United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom there are currently no acts in place that allow for the rigorous testing of learning disabilities for children.

This is important as many children as left to go through school unaware of their needs. This means that when these learning disabilities are unknown, they act as a barrier to further, higher, education and future job prospects as they are not given the help they need.

Learning disabilities are not a not nessesarily a barrier in themselves however when they are not known about for example dyslexia: people who have dyslexia often take longer to process so those who have this and do not get extra time in exams are unable to complete exams to the fullest and so do not get the grades they truly deserve. 

Many children often develop coping mechanisms and so when tested later come out negative instead of positive therfore it is imperative every child should have the right to have a phycological test at a young age so that they get an equal chance at school.
