How can you find the mainstream schools which offer the best support for dyslexia? What should you look for, and what should you ask about?
Dyslexia is commonly understood to encompass difficulties with reading, spelling and writing. But as an umbrella term referring to a variety of difficulties with underlying skills, such as phonological processing, or working memory, the presenting problems for many children with a diagnosis of dyslexia will be different.
Learning to read can be a challenge for some children. Some will simply take longer to master it, but it can be a symptom of dyslexia, vision problems, or emotional difficulties.
