Your years at school, college and university go a long way to determining the life you lead as an adult. A Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADHD, can often disrupt the learning process through these important years. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
It is estimated that Dyslexia affects as many as one in ten people in the UK. If you are a parent and your child has dyslexia, the chances are they will not be the only dyslexic child in their class. If you are a teacher or a SENCO, you’ll probably engage with many children with dyslexia throughout the day.
Today, children interact with the world around them differently to previous generations. They often use computers, tablets and smartphones at school and at home. And the chances are, when they complete their education, they’ll choose a job where using computers and technology will form a large part of the work they do. It is therefore important that children with dyslexia do not get left behind.
