Education Scotland report on dyslexia, May 2014

The report is the outcome of an independent review of education for children and young people who have dyslexia, carried out on behalf of the Scottish Government.

The report identifies that although there have been improvements in practice since the last review in 2008, there is still inconsistency and variability in practice across Scotland’s 32 local authorities. The report also highlights that young people with dyslexia attain significantly less well than their peers who do not have additional support needs.

A number of recommendations are identified in the report: Making Sense: Education for Children and Young People with Dyslexia in Scotland

The free online Addressing Dyslexia Toolkit is a useful resource for parents, families, schools and local authorities.
