10% of children are dyslexic, most go unrecognised,
leading to academic failure, poor self-esteem, anxiety and
depression. Teachers and parents want to do their best
for vulnerable children, but no one can do it alone.
Connect with leading experts to create inclusive classrooms
using practical, evidence based approaches that not only
benefit children with dyslexia, but all children.
