Last week a senior secondary teacher told me that his school has no pupils with dyslexia. This may be true. However, given that estimates from dyslexia organisations show that 1 child in 10 has dyslexic tendencies, it is unlikely.
So I was particularly interested in a new report from research organisation Policy Exchange – supported by NASEN, the national body for special needs – which reinforces the view that many teachers have limited awareness of special needs and are not able to cater effectively for young people who need specialist support.
